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

  • 118,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Buick Lesabre. While driving 20 mph the transmission locked. The front wheel of the vehicle and the transmission casing broke in half. The transmission had began to slip prior to the failure. The dealer had previously adjusted the computer on the vehicle; yet that did not correct the failure. The dealer stated this the failure was caused by the mileage on the vehicle. The contact stated that the design of the transmission had caused the failure to occur. The failure and current mileages were 118000.
