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.

problem #3

Instrument panel cluster (ipc) display is difficult to see when driving toward bright sunshine. This condition does not affect the ipc operation. This condition could be caused by an insufficient color contrast in the ipc display and by insufficient ambient light reaching the cluster face due to deep tunnels around the ipc gauges. Please refer to: GM document id: 2371933 ________________________________________ #06-08-49-021F: Difficult to view instrument panel cluster (ipc) display when driving toward bright sunshine (install new instrument panel cluster with led back lighting) - (Dec 3, 2009)

My instrument panel cluster is so dim during the day I can't tell how fast I'm going... my previous 2009 Buick lucerne had a bulletin for instrument panel back light replacement.
