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 2002 Buick Rendezvous. The contact stated that the air bag light remains constantly illuminated. The light does not dim even when he is seated and wearing his seat belt. The dealer stated that the vehicle was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 02V222000 (air bags:frontal). The contact would have to pay for a diagnostic. In addition, the fuel gauge worked occasionally, which prevented the contact from knowing how much fuel was in the tank. The dealer stated that they would repair the vehicle only at the contact's expense. The failure mileage was 125,000 and current mileage was 133,000. Updated 6/8/09 updated 06/11/09.
