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.

2002 Buick Rendezvous Owner Comments

The brochure and owners manual for the 2002 Buick Rendezvous both state that the dic (drivers information center) includes a tire pressure monitor. The dealer I bought a 2002 Rendezvous also believed the car had a tire pressure monitor. However the 2002 Rendezvous apparently is not available with the tire pressure monitor. The sales literature and owners manual incorrectly say that it is available, and my experience is that sales personnel often also believe it's available. An unwary consumer could buy and drive a 2002 Rendezvous incorrectly believing the car will warn them of a dangerously low tire. I believe Buick should notify all owners of dic equipped 2002 Rendezvous and clarify that the car does not have a tire pressure monitor. This notification should also include a mechanism permenantly correct the owners manual. Reference: Description of dic, page 40 of brochure for 2002 Buick Rendezvous. Also 2002 Rendezvous owners manual, page 2-107 describes non-existent tire pressure monitor mode in dic. It does not describe it as optional.
