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.

2011 Buick Lucerne. Consumer states issues with vehicle and describes a crash the consumer stated there was a very loud noise emitting from the vehicle which lasted about 30 to 60 seconds. Two days later, the noise returned, but it sounded as though steel was breaking. A week later, the consumer and his wife were involved in an accident. The police stated the consumer made an illegal U-turn and therefore, the vehicle was T-boned. The consumer believed he and his wife were inhaling toxic fumes and possibly passed out. After the accident, there was a muffled explosion that came from the rear of the vehicle. The vehicle was totaled.
