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.

While driving in petoskey the car started to miss an backfiring then the motor stop running. I couldn't stop or steer the car. After I got the car finely stopped the car wouldn't start up an I could smell like wire burning. I had the car delivered to an auto shop brown motors in harbor springs mi. After the diagnosis they found that the fuse block under the rear seat was burned up at the fuel pump fuse, an was on fire at one time.. the fuse block was beyond fixing an needed a new one installed. There was a recall on the ignition switch, but this isn't what is wrong with these cars, I don' believe that the ignition switch on there recall are what is wrong, I believe that the fuse block is what wrong with there recalls when the fuse shorts out the fuel pump stops an so does the car motor. Strange that the car dealers for some reason has them in stock, there should be a recall on all car with this type of fuse box, this is what causing these car to stop running an get in a accidents. To day I got lucky.

Red light warning indicated that airbag needed servicing. Took it to the dealership where car was purchased. Dealer stated that it was an electrical problem. There is no warranty for this. Seems strange that a 5 yr. Old automobile with low mileage should need a whole new system or have this problem. It is very expensive to repair.

The Buick was in my garage which is attached to the house, before going to bed I always open the door to the garage to be sure the garage door is down and the flag is inside. Did so that night and all was normal. The next morning when I opened the door to the garage to put the big door up and the flag out the garage was very warm. No other indication of a problem, assumed he furnace had acted up. We took the car to have breakfast did notice the hood was very warm as if the car had been running (I do not have a sense of smell so did not smell an exhaust) fuel was very low ( I wondered if there was enough to get to a service station) filled he car had breakfast then came home not apparent problems. Later that morning my wife use the car to go to an appointment when it started to miss, she pulled off the road and called aaa who towed the car to the nearest Buick dealer. The car is there now, they had no yet determined the problem.
