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.

2004 Buick Rendezvous - extremely unreliable horn (design flaw). I have narrowly escaped many accidents by sheer luck. Have had people backing into me & been unable to honk the horn because I could not find the very limited "sweet spot." When the steering wheel is turned even slightly, it is impossible to find!

The starter and horn did not always work. Thermostat and fuel gauge was not accurate. There had previously been a problem with the ignition switch and it was repaired due to a recall. The problem with the starter started in March of 2005. These problems have not been repaired as of yet. When the consumer took the vehicle it to the dealership they told her it was designed that way.

While pressing down on the horn, it failed. The dealer had inspected the vehicle several times and could not duplicate the problem.
