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.

I have had this car 3 years and I have had to replace the regulator on the drivers side door once and the passenger side twice. Really Bad design

LeSabre Limited 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,000 miles

Window regulator made well except for plastic piece that broke into several pieces.

Was able to use two of these pieces and secured them next to small wheel that holds the cable wire by using duct tape. Have raised and lowered window multiple times and it works great. Try this solution if you enjoy being creative.

LeSabre LS 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 175,000 miles

The motor in the rear passenger window went out twice and in the rear driver's side window 3 times. I finally started buying used parts, since the new ones were only warranted for a year and then they would go out and I would have to replace again at my cost. I will list this as 5 separate occurrences.

This is the SECOND window regulator and motor that have failed in this car. First it was the left rear window and now the right rear window, each repair at about $400. There is definitely a problem with the power window systems on this car. The windows are very seldom used. I'm sure the drivers window will break next.
