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 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 142004

Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,200 miles


The vehicle stalled when driving on the highway. The vehicle would sometimes cut completely off. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for service, but the dealer could not duplicate the problem. While the dealer was trying to find the problem with the stalling, they found that the brake module lost communication with the computer. The stalling problem continued to occur. Other problems were: The battery light had come on followed by engine stalling, the ebcm was intermittently dropping out therefore the ignition relay was replaced and the liftgate did not open properly.
