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.

2007 Buick Rendezvous Owner Comments

Car would not shift from reverse to the park position. The car's shift cable had broken leaving the car in an unsafe reverse position. Turned off the car, set the parking brake and called to have the car towed to a repair shop. The repair shop replaced the shifter cable and stated this is a common problem with this GM platform, to the point the shop keeps the replacement cables in stock. This is a safety issue and I have read that GM has a recall out for 2014 shifter cables experiencing the same problem.

Summary: On certain sport utility vehicles, contamination on ignition relay contacts can cause high resistance. This can affect signals to the powertrain control module and, could cause intermittent vehicle stalls at any time. Consequence: The vehicle cannot be restarted immediately. If this were to occur, it could result in a vehicle crash.
