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 Terraza Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 60,000 miles


While trying to shift, the shifting lever disconnected to the transmission. This made it impossible to shift gears. The shifting assembly appeared to come apart. I am not able to use the vehicle due to this.

problem #1

  • miles
Vibration at 50+ mph. Pulsating, vibrating when braking. Uneven wear on tires (feathering) noticed at 3,000 miles. Horn takes a lot of pressure to make it work. 2 metro Buick dealers say all above is normal and can not find anything wrong. One dealer printed 2 service bulletins to show me GM says it is normal. Headlights and interior lights dim and brighten on their own. Have had numerous oncoming cars blink their high beams at me thinking my high beams are on. I was denied in my request for a Buick official to get involved. Van is now 9 months old and only 8,000 miles because it is unbearable to drive with all that shaking.
