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.

problem #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Very bad electrical issues. Started out as a headlamp that we tried to fix but couldn't. Next the speedometer, temperature gauge, gas gauge and now both headlights will not work. This is a real safety issue and should be a recall. When the headlights have failed this is more serious than a electric window that goes bad. GM should be forced to fix this problem. I would like to see this remedied and GM should make it right.

problem #1

LeSabre 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 69,143 miles

The speedometer worked fine, wife took the car on a 700 mile trip, half-way, it quit working, arrived at destination and it worked for several days, stopped working half way home. Not fun to have a wife in desolate Wyoming not knowing how fast she's driving. Bought sensor and replaced it. Worked fine. Headed from Colorado to Indiana, hit Illinois with new sensor and speedometer quit working. Took it out, cleaned it off and has been working since..
