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.

problem #2

May 052015

Regal GS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 165,000 miles


Car began just cutting out while city driving. Got more serious when it started to happen on freeway. One moment doing 65 then a split second later engine dies, no stalling, just cuts out. Starts up after about 5 minutes rest. Very dangerous, has been at Buick dealership for 3 weeks and they seem to have no clue what it is or how to fix it.

problem #1

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

Car turned off while driving, First time fixed the Cardone MAF sensors, worked for about 3 Months. Happen again, fixed several problems -secondary air pump, intake gaskets, cover gaskets, EFI service, plus other minor things, $1000.00. Worked for about another 3 months.

Happened again, fixed the ignition starter, 6 months later happened again, replaced starter. 4 months later happened again. That's where I'm now, mechanic is not sure what to do so he wants to replace the lights switch, say's it's causing the a battery problem. ? I give up, does anyone know what this could be?
