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.

My recall was Jan 2015 that low beam head lights goes off. Mine are off all the time. No parts available so they want me to pay for repairs. If repairs are available then why do they pay to fix. Bill app.300.00 can not drive night only have high and fog lights. Have talked to royal Buick hoover al. And head man steven senior advisior at Buick. He said he would help. All he did was call royal and they said $105 for diagnasit plus repairs. I am on social security and small ret. From county. Can not afford. Second recall on this car. If I have a wreck and hurt some one or me hope they can pay bills thank you for listening bless you.

The heated seat got hot and was unable to turn off. The leather seat burnt through from the heating unit or wire to the heating element. The dealership said it is not their problem so it is not fixed. There is no longer power to the seat.

Rainier 6-cyl Diesel

  • 87,246 miles
Short circuit in electrical system caused overheating which caused door locks and power windows to smoke, produce odor in car and show signs of fire damage on door. All warning signs were lit on dashboard. Car wouldn't start for over 24 hours. When it did we drove it to a dealer. Upon driving, all bells and whistles were going while driving. This particular problem has been recalled as of August 2012, id # 90864. I was told that my particular VIN number wasn't included and I think it should be. I would like to be reimbursed.
