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.

2002 Buick Regal Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 102010

Regal 6-cyl

  • 142,000 miles


While turning vehicle off I was unable to remove key from the ignition cylinder. Despite attempts to lubricate the ignition key cylinder and the gear selector switch the key still remains stuck in the ignition cylinder. This problem has progressively grown worse over the past year and key removal failure occurs 98% of the time.
