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 2011 Buick Regal. The contact stated that the vehicle would loose power sporadically. The contact stated the check transmission light or stability control light would illuminate on the instrument panel when the failure occurred. The vehicle never stalled, but the contact would loose power steering when the failure occurred. The dealer replaced the computer twice and was also looking at a possible transmission failure, but the vehicle was not repaired. The vehicle was left with the dealer for more extensive inspection. The failure mileage was 10,000 and the current mileage was 17,000. Updated 7/12/12 the consumer stated while driving, all of a sudden the vehicle started to slow down. He lost all power to the steering and brakes. The transmission control valve arm was replaced. In May 2012, he was making a turn and the power steering went out, which left him with no steering, brakes or transmission. The consumer hit a fence post dragging the front bumper. The transmission was replaced. Updated 07/18/12

Navigation system has failed three times including not accepting known addresses and sending you to a wrong address which in one case was a safety issue sending you into an area which was obviously an area of criminal activity that was nowhere near the doctors office we were trying to locate. It will not even accept my home address as a destination location. I have another navigation system in our other vehicle and also a portable system which accepts my address as a destination. I don't feel that this system can be counted on in an emergency and should be recalled or replaced.
