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.

My 2004 Buick Rendezvous has been in the shop 8 times in 10 1/2 months. Currently I am experiencing a loud noise (much like an air raid horn) while I am stopped in traffic and when I turn my vehicle off. It started back in April, the dealership could not recreate the noise, in the shop again 11/4/05 and again 11/11/05. I just do not feel safe in the car. I it is getting progressively worse, louder and more frequent, lasting longer. I purchased my vehicle 17 Dec 04 and the very next day had a break problem. My service record is as follows: 1) 12/20/04- ABS light on - all wheel drive disabled 2) 01/27/05 - ABS light on - all wheel drive disabled 3) 4/25/05 - ABS light on all wheel drive disabled would not drive over 40 mph - 3) 4/25/05 - passenger side mirror clicking when vehicle is put into reverse 3) 4/25/05 vehicle makes a loud air horn noise when vehicle is turned off 4) 5-19/05 - ABS light on - all wheel drive disabled 4) 5/19/05 - vehicle looses power when making left turns or on incline 4) 5/16/05 installed rear lift gate latch 5) 7/15/05 driver side mirror glass came loose 6) 9/01/05 - drivers side power window inoperative- 7) 11/4/05 - very loud acceleration - exhaust manifold leaking right exhaust manifold 7) 11/4/05 loud noise while driving vehicle, stopping in traffic and when vehicle is turned off 8) 11/11/05 wobble in left front tire- reface front rotors out of round 8) 11/11/05 took vehicle in for the loud air horn noise while driving, stopping in traffic and turning vehicle off - had a 5 minute discussion with service person about this and it did not even make it on the invoice.
