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.

I bought this vehicle in Feb. 2015. About a week after purchase I was going to work one night and the vehicle suddenly veered to the left and brakes locked. The stability light then came on. I pulled over and shut the van off and restarted it. No light was on then. About one month later it did it again. This time I was going about 50 miles ph. A car behind me almost hit me from behind due to the sudden stop.another month went by before it started doing it again. This time it veered into the path of a semi tractor trailer. I then called the dealership and they agreed to have it fixed. I got it back a week later and it still has the same issue. This problem is going to cause a major accident and hopefully no one gets killed!!!!!! Buick needs to recall these vans immediately.

The check engine light has been illuminated as well as the traction control light is on (indicates ABS needs to be serviced) also transmission "slips" when moving forward. At times when both the engine light and ABS light are on the engine will reduce power. Transmission was replaced at 63,000 for the same thing! have had to numerous shops who cannot locate issue. The doors will not lock shut- they come forward and pop out and reopen. Must operate manually.

The contact owns a 2006 Buick Terraza. The contact stated that the stability control warning light illuminated, causing the brakes to activate without warning. When the failure occurred, the vehicle would become difficult to control. The dealer made three attempts to duplicate the failure but to no avail. The vehicle was taken to a private mechanic who recalibrated the vehicle however, the failure continued. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure but did not offer any assistance. The current mileage was 65,000 and the approximate failure mileage was 57,000.

My vehicle is equipped with anti lock brakes. The same system is used for traction control and stability control. My vehicle is prone to brake sensor failures. Whenever one of the sensors fails the onboard diagnostic system disables all 3 of these safety features. I currently have the third sensor failure since I have owned the vehicle.
