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.

Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • 16,800 miles


I was driving the vehicle to an appointment and all of a sudden it thumbed when I moved from the light taking off not like it was shifting but as something was knocked in, then the lower light I turn on in the truck stopped working, the interior dash lights as well stopped on the 11 of March about 6 pm I was heading back in from out of town had to position my cell phone so I could see what speed I was going, the turning to the right knocks like something is about to fall off, and the to top it off the wiper from the back window leaks in the inside when I try to clean with fluid, the seat belt as well is not locking I and my on star it reads and talks as I tried to set up an account the system failed and my engine stalls as well the temperature gauge runs hot if I go in town and stop at the lights I checked the fluid and it is in their I called GM and they quote and quote say their was never a recall on my vehicle but I see online that their was why is it that they can't seem to locate any information I hate that I am always getting duped in with these vehicles and then I get more depressed and shut down and feel like all my funds mean nothing to any one.
