Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2003 Buick LeSabre Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 162006

LeSabre Limited

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,000 miles


Picture it - the car has 19,000. We're on our way to a dinner party at a restaurant 45 miles away from home on a Saturday. It's around Christmas time, so it's cold and raining and about 8 pm. All of a sudden we get this huge whiff of sulfur and the service light goes on. We have Onstar, so we call. The person at Onstar says there is a problem with the engine and we shouldn't drive it. Get a tow. We'll need to take it to the dealer on a SUNDAY (the service area is CLOSED on Sundays)

3 DAYS outside of the warranty, the response from the dealer "Tough Luck." $1400 to repair o rings on engine cylinders. Like I said before about the dashboard - poor engineering and poor assembly. What a LEMON!
