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.

1. I have a 2005 Buick rendezvous with only 48,000 miles on it. One month ago the service traction system light/ABS/tracking off lights kept coming on. I just bought brand new tires in May 2007 and approx one month later I heard a bad roaring noise coming from what I thought was the tires. I thought it was because they were brand new and would probably be somewhat noisy. Then the lights started coming on. The brakes grind also some of the time and it seems to feel like a car slipping on gravel. I took the SUV to the dealership where I bought it and they told me that the left front ABS jumper harness is defective and needs replaced and also the hub bearings both need replaced to the tune of $1030. My warranty ran out just this year and there is not an extended warranty, but not even sure if this type of thing would have been covered. I have never heard of such a thing going wrong with a car. I haven't had this vehicle very long, nor have a ever abused it or hauled anything with it. I take very good care of it. I read on a website that everyone who has a Buick rendezvous regrets purchasing this lemon of a car and have all the same problems that I am having. GM was called and they will not help me with this, even though this is a nationwide problem with the car. Something needs to be done and everyone needs to be reimbursed for the mountainous problems they have had.
