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.

The contact owns a 2011 Buick Lucerne. While driving at a low speed, the vehicle hesitated when the brake pedal was depressed. The contact stated that the transmission was not in sync with the engine. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who diagnosed that the transmission failed due to excessive travel in the third clutch piston. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer would not repair the vehicle because the warranty expired. The failure mileage was 117,000.
