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.

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.

The car feels very unstable, it wobbles and wanders at speeds over 40 mph. It is made worse with winds over 10 mph, going down hill, on an uneven surface, when a truck is passing and a speeds around 60-65 mph. If all these symptoms come together the car is very very unstable. The feeling is very similar to going over a grooved road surface.

Several attempts were made to correct a problem with my 2004 Buick Lesabre. I have been dealing with a rep from GM motors without success. He just kept stringing me along saying he would call, at first it was every week then every three days - each time saying he was conducting an ivestigation into the problem. The car was purchased Aug 17, 2004 and the problem has existed since "day one"! I do not feel the car is safe! it has been back to the dealer several times. A re-purchase was supposed to be in the works but I guess they don't want the car either! not only are the seat covers bad but the vehicle keeps vibrating/wobbling! I have all the work orders (except for some verble comments) to support my complaint. I bought a new car I believe I should own a new car! please help me get this situation cleared up and me on the road with a new car(safe) like was purchased in the first place! I was going to resort to reporting to the attorney general but I'm hoping this form will help me out.

I purchased a used 2004 Buick Lesabre with 18000 miles. I can feel a vibration in my feet, seat, and the steering wheel at speeds above 60mph. The dealer checked the tires and replaced the right front tire saying it was out of round and that all the other tires were in balance and within spec.S. I have driven it for severals day now and I can't discern any improvement. I called the service dept. Back this morning and they recommended I purchase a $566 set of new tires! I think the problem is in the drivetrain but they won't even discuss that possibility.
