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.

well, all the windows of my buick have now failed. started looking on-line the last time the electric window failed. I saw there is no recall by "governmental motors" because it's not a "safety" issue, I'd disagree considering how small children could potentially be playing with the electric window and it fails....all kinds of bad things can happen at this point. As both windows' in the rear of my car failed in succession, I modified those windows "permantely shut" because I do have children (3) who ride back there and one of those children is "physically challenged" so I totally disagree that G.M. won't recall this. From reading around on the net it seems MANY G.M. customers have had the exact same problems I'm having, some even having multiple failures on the same window!!!

How horrible G.M..... it's no wonder foreign makers are kicking your ass, they take care of thier customers much better. Buick only cares about how many centurys' it can sell in China now. The U.S.A. doesn't matter to Buick anymore. Think about the last time you've seen a buick ad on T.V. too? They do the ocassional commercial but they've cut way back on advertising in the U.S., but overseas they are spending lots of $$$. STEP UP G.M./BUICK and fix this very repeatable problem.
