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've had several problems with my car. One of the problems is when vehicle is at a stopped position while driving, vehicle rolls back. Dealership claims it is normal. Air conditioning/heater does not cool/heat enough. There is a "klunck" noise from under the car almost everytime I stop. Dealership is looking into it and has Buick Corp involved.
