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 #2

Lucerne 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Impossible to read speedometer & other gauges during sunlight. Gauges light up at twilight, but, not during daylight hours. This is a safety problem and cannot be corrected at the dealership. This condition has existed since the time the new vehicle was driven from the showroom.

You can not read the dash board instruments in the day time. You can not see how fast your going, how much fuel you have or if you are over heating. Which makes for unsafe driving. At night the dash board instruments are well lit and you can read every thing. I've reported this to the Buick dealer with no results. This defect is on my new 2006 Buick Lucerne lxs.
