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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: If you're in the market for a used, comfortably-oversized luxury sedan, you could do worse than the 2005 Buick Park Avenue.

This was the last model year the Park Avenue was available in the US market, and there's just not that many complaints about it. Plus, it has a hood ornament! There just aren't enough cars with hood ornaments anymore. Just make sure you avoid getting rear-ended as the car did very poorly in rear-impact crash tests.

Purchased 2005 Buick Park Avenue from van buren Buick in garden city park, New York was concerned that vehicle had all current safety features as listed in brochure. ABS, air bags, dtable track and on-star were some of the main safety features. Specifically asked salesman ( pat longo) if on-star will continue to work after the digital cutover in Jan 2008. Salesman assured me that unit was digital ready and would be converted by dealer at no charge prior to Jan 2008 now both dealer and GM refuse to honor this pledge and say I was sold a analog only on_star unit and dealer denies that his salesperson committed fraud by selling me a vehicle that did not meet my requested standards. Dealer offered me $500 towards the purchase of a new vehicle for $40,000 this vehicle should be taken back at full purchase price to be applied to a car with the safety equipment requested as the sale was an intended fraud in order to sell the vehicle GM stated that it is the dealers responsibility as the had full knowledge the my car had an analog on-star system that could not be update to the 2008 digital standards.
