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.

Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Buick Rendezvous. When the brakes were applied at 5 mph, the vehicle slid and felt as if it were driving over gravel. The vehicle took approximately 5-10 seconds to completely stop. The road conditions were not a factor. The dealer replaced the left and right wheel bearing as well as the control module. The current mileage was 71,000 and failure mileage was 68,000. The consumer stated has always had off and on problems with brakes the problem being if brakes are applied under 30 mph they will not respond the car feels as if you are sliding. The consumer stated that the anti lock light comes on. The dealer stated ac not working properly. Updated 08/28/07
