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.

2004 Buick LeSabre Owner Comments

LeSabre 6-cyl

For the past 6 months, after starting, then attempting to put on seat belt, the belt often locks up and I cannot pull it out to hook it up. After several tries, it finally unlocks so I can put it on. This happens approx. 1-4 times per week (I usually drive daily). Sometimes only the first time in a day when I start the car. It is frustrating, and causes me to worry that sometime it may not unlock and I will be forced to drive without the belt only.

2004 Buick lasabre - noticed the front seat belts are attached to the seat rather than the frame of the car. Driver and passenger are therefore only belted to the seat which can become dislodged during an accident. There needs to be a recall and corrective action taken.

Shimmy in steering column. Recommended tires be rotated and balanced. Did not correct problem. Appox. 6 months after purchase, noticed electrical odor when heat button on seat was turned on. Now seat belt on driver's side sticks when it recoils. Noise under hood. Unable to determine cause. Cluster went out and none of the gauges work except the odometer. This is a 2004 Lesabre with 57,000 miles.
