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.

2004 Buick Regal Owner Comments

problem #1

First time my car stalled and had the ignition switch replaced was 15 months after purchasing it from a Buick dealer. Beginning 9/2011 car began stalling at many and various times. I attempted to have this repaired - taking to my Buick dealer on many occasions and to my local auto mechanic making repairs as suggested and still my car continued to stall, most recent time of stalling - Oct. 2013 - had Buick dealer again check and research technical documents to see what could be causing this problem - Buick could not find anything even after I asked them 'could it be my ignition switch' and was told no. I took my car to my local auto mechanic again and after doing lots of testing - he replaced my ignition switch. Car has not stalled since. As I understand it - my ignition switch could fail again and I am requesting that my make and model be reviewed and included in the 'recent' GM ignition switch recall.
