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.

1999 Buick Regal Owner Comments

problem #1

Regal GS 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission

In the last couple of weeks, my car has started acting up. When I turn the key, before starting, there's a buzzing sound coming from under the drivers side dash. This is accompanied by the service engine light flashing. Sometimes, after the buzzing stops, I can start the car. Sometimes, I can't get it to even turn over after that. Waiting 10-15 seconds usually helps. The car has also quit a few times on me while being cold, the engine will just stop running and everything electrical will quit, and 10 seconds later I can restart it just fine. The two problems have both started at the same time.
