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.

2012 Buick Regal Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 302012


  • 165 miles


We purchased this vehicle on 7 March 2012 and shortly afterwards I was checking it over and saw that the back of the headliner was hanging down about an inch or so. I took it into the the garage where I purchased the car and they had their repair person check it out. They first tried to use double sided sticky tape and it did not work so they went to the head office of Buick to try to solve the problem. On 10 April I took the car back in and their fix was to stick small magnets to the roof and also to the headliner and then snap the magnets together. I don't know how many magnets they used but the headliner is looking ok for now. I don't know how long this fix will last or if the headliner should have been replaced. Guess we will need to wait and see.
