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.

Timing chain and water pump chain and all the other good things that go along with this needed to be replace on my 2011 Buick Regal 2.4L engine just under 25000 milesthis should not have happened at this mileage. What if this decided to go while I was on the highway..this seems like a problem that needs to be investigated.

When I came to a stop the car stalled. Returned to dealer and they could not find any problem. On 5/29/13 I was making a U turn and when the turn was completed the car stalled again this was on a busy highway. Car is in shop now and again, they can't duplicate problem. This is extremely dangerous.

2011 Buick Regal. Consumer states on five separate occasions the engine stalled the consumer stated when the vehicle stalled, it was difficult to restart. The last two instances, the vehicle had to be towed. The dealer reprogrammed the ECM and replaced the fuel pump on July 22, 2011. However, the stalling continued well into the next month.
