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

Jan 012014

I went down into a ditch on an icy road, driving 40 km/hr, ditch deeper then 2 meters.

That was my first accident. Roads very bad on January 1, 2014 around Comber area, I hit a spot with black ice and went into spin. Even new tires that I put on few weeks before didn't help. Seat belt and air bags didn't work. Of course car is total and unfix-able. I was lucky to get off with bad bruising and sores. I will be sore for several days. My neck and head sore as well, air/bag didn't work. I was stuck in freezing temperatures for almost hour before snow plow and police were able to find me.

What kind of safety and protection is it ? Shame on Buick.

Will never buy another one.
