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.

2005 Buick Rendezvous Owner Comments

I recently purchased a 2005 Buick Rendezvous cxl. As I was exiting the driver side door, the inner door handle gave me a fairly deep paper- like cut. There seems to be a rough edge on the handle that almost looks like the metal coating is peeling or separating and it sliced my middle finger on my left hand. I'm not very impressed and I am wondering how often this is going to happen? I think this should be a definite recall. It is not a life threatening injury, but very concerning considering I have 3 children and it could've been one of them that received the injury instead of me.
