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.

I was getting back into my car and went to open the driver's side door, when the door handle mechanism pulled out of the door. I was shocked....never experience this in 41years of driving.

Lucerne 6-cyl

  • 35,915 miles
With only 85 miles left on my warranty for my 2008 Buick Lucerne the driver's side door handle fell off. My husband was able to temporarily push it back on. We immediately drove to the dealership. They replaced the door handle under the warranty. The bill would have been $94 otherwise. No way should a door handle fall off a vehicle which is still barely new.
