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.

Good little car but the Ignition switch failed on our Buick Regal years ago while driving in heavy traffic. The engine killed so there was no longer power steering or brakes. I thought I would report it since it is a pretty cheap fix but can lead to very dangerous situations very fast. I have changed these out on other cars as well and they are a cheap crappy little plastic part. I don't trust GM to this day for covering up knowledge of this problem for an entire decade. It has been a known issue since these cars were made.
