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.

In Jan 2011, front right wheel hub assembly and speed sensor was replaced with oem part. In June 2011, the part had failed again. Per mechanic, fault is due to speed sensor not returning correct speed when speed is < 8 mph. Per mechanic, this wiill increase stopping distance when it occurs.

Rendezvous

  • 90,000 miles
The contact owns a 2003 Buick Rendezvous which was purchased new in 2003. She stated that the power steering failed on the vehicle and over time it developed a slow leak. There were repairs made to the vehicle; however, the failure persisted. It became extremely hard to utilize the steering wheel and when attempting to put power steering fluid in the vehicle, it would leak back out. The hub bearings also failed causing the brakes to function improperly when attempting to stop and early wear and tear on her tires. No additional repairs made to the vehicle. The current and failure mileages were under 90,000.

The contact stated in April 2004, she heard a loud roaring noise as vehicle accelerated. It seemed to be louder as she turned the steering wheel to either the left or right. The dealership replaced one of the front tire hubs under warranty. She was not sure if it was the left or the right. Just recently she heard the same noise, and was told that both front tire hubs needed to be replaced. Also, the power steering pump was replaced in July 2005. After having the power steering pump replaced she was hearing the same noise. The dealership told her the pump they had originally put on was bad, and they were going to replace it. Then, she was told they would have to replace it again because the pump was leaking fluid.
