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.

2003 Buick Rendezvous Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 66,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Buick Rendezvous. While driving approximately 10 mph, the contact noticed smoke from the driver's side front seat. Upon further inspection, she noticed flames coming from the vehicle. She took her vehicle to a dealer and they concluded that when she adjusted her seat, the track ran over a cord in the wiring harness that created a fire. The vehicle does not have optional heat/cooler integrated seats. The technician stated that the seat would have to be replaced and the wiring in the electrical system needed to be repaired. The contact is in the process of having the vehicle repaired. The failure and current mileages were 66,000.
