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.

Multiple problems with 2005 Buick Rendezvous. I am writing to you in regards to the front wheel bearing and hub. 4th time being repaired since 2007 - once a year this part has failed and needed to be replaced. 5/4/07 right at 33,860 7/15/08 right at 61,546 4/6/09 left at 78,057 4/15/10 right at 99,500 the issue is the AWD disable and antilock break lock light iss coming on. I am so nervous to drive in this car, I do not feel safe. May I also mention that I have had 2 tie rod replacements, 1 transfer case assembly replacement, 1 rim replacement because it cracked. Actually my tires (4 brand new tires) continue to loose air - I am filling up approximately every 2 weeks.

Wheel bearings on a 3 year old vehicle failed on the right side. After a $300+ repair bill, now the left side has the same problem. A pretty new vehicle is dangerous to drive.

All wheel drive disabled warning and ABS light came on. Also loss of power while going up hill. Internet states problem is probably caused by wheel bearings. 2002 to 2004 are covered with extended warranty. 2005 is not.
