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.

The contact owns a 2003 Buick Regal. The contact stated that he smelled something burning in his vehicle. He noticed that the engine light illuminated on the instrument panel. He received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign id number 09V116000 and GM recall number 90047, which was repaired by the dealer on May 27, 2009. The dealer informed the contact of another issue with his vehicle and stated that he had to pay $88, but the contact refused. The dealer believed that the other issue had nothing to do with the recall failure. The failure mileage was 120,000.
