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.

2006 Buick Lucerne Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 262007

Lucerne 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,000 miles


- the contact heard a rattling noise coming from the trunk of the 2006 Buick Lucerne. The contact depressed the trunk release button inside the vehicle to open the trunk. The contact reached into the trunk to see what was causing the rattling noise. Once inside the trunk, the two torsion bars that held the trunk lid open fell inside the trunk, causing the trunk lid to fall onto the contact's back. The trunk lid had to be opened by others so that he could be released from the trunk. The vehicle was taken a dealership, where they replaced the torsion bars, and informed the contact that the torsion bars were defective. The contact stated there have been no other incidents since the torsion bars have been replaced. The vehicle currently had 14000 miles. Updated 03/30/07.
