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

This has been taken to dealer/buerkle Buick 3350 highway 61, St. Paul, mn. 55110. Service tec refused to document this problem. There is an intermittent failure of the display circuit which indicates the gear the car is in. On start-up, there is no display of shift position or radio display. About 30-40 seconds later, there is an audible "tink" directly in front of the driver in the dash. Obviously, there is a defective relay in the circuit, and I am not going to get "caught" on this one after the warrenty period is up. This report establishes an offical record of the problem to ensure future repair. It is inherently dangerous to have no idea of what gear one is in, other than guessing!
