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.

I am having electrical problems with my 2002 Buick Rendezvous. First, the power door locks, windows, air conditioner, radio and remote keys entry would lock. Then yesterday the vehicle lost all power while I was driving in traffic. Somehow I managed to turn a corner (without power steering) and park the vehicle. After waiting a while and removing and replacing the connection from the battery to the fuse box under the hood, I was able to get it restarted and return to work. When I tried to leave work, it died in the driveway. Again I was able to reset everything after several tries and park the vehicle. I am afraid to drive it. I also have problems with squeaky brakes, which have been bad since I purchased the vehicle but the dealer and an independent garage cannot find a cause. I also am starting to have problems with the coolant level going down with no visible leak.

On four prior occasions for sudden catastrophic electrical system failure / stalling while the vehicle is in operation, this creates a major hazard to safe operation of the vehicle. The dealership and General Motors have been unable to isolate / replicate and effect repairs for this intermittent nonconformity, yet they have expect us to continue operating the vehicle while they knowingly have failed to effect repair. My wife and I are afraid to operate the vehicle in its condition and jeopardize our safety by operating a vehicle that is unsafe for highway operation. Given the nature of the problem, automobile appraisers state our vehicle is worthless for sale or trade. Current mileage 18187.
