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.

Consumer states that the dashboard lights and the vehicle shift lights do not work. When these do not work, the tail lights do not work either. The consumer found out when someone told him the tail lights were not working. The dealership has fixed the problem twice, but when this happens, it only works for a day. The consumer has contacted Buick. Consumer noticed the tail lights were not working on Saturday, July 9, 2005. He had been driving without the dash board lights not knowing the tail lights were not working.
