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. Notes: The Buick Rainier is a replacement for the Oldsmobile Bravada, hopefully minus the transmission issues and AWD complaints.

2004 Buick Rainier Owner Comments

Does anyone have this problem with their Buick Rainier? Whether I am going slow or fast, every time I drive over a bump in the road my Buick is squirrely and it feels like it is fish-tailing. I have almost gone off the road a couple of times. I thought it was my air bag, which had a leak, but I got it fixed and my Buick is still extremely squirrely. When I drive it sounds like something is loose in the back of the vehicle. I am not sure what the problem is. I appreciate any help or suggestions!
