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

Jul 082007

Lucerne 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 300 miles


Bought the car "new" on 7/4/07. On 7/8/07 the transmission would not downshift into first gear. Took the car to a Buick dealer where they fixed a defective part. Drove the car home that night and the problem started again. Brought the car to another dealer and they diagnosed the same problem. The car is still in the shop today. I've owned the car for 11 days and it's been in the shop 8 days and counting.
