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.

2008 Buick Lucerne Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 18,600 miles


Defroster vents improperly positioned to keep front windshield clear in near zero conditions. Window wiper blades park in an area below the heated portion of the windshield. Wipers froze to the window, during the delay in the interrupted operation, while driving in a snow storm at 3 deg. Temp. Window actually became totally frozen over and visibility became impossible. On the passenger side, ice accumulated in the wiper pave in the lower right corner, about 3 X 6 X 1/4 thick and the wiper had to navigate up and over this frozen mass.
