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.

2003 Cadillac CTS Owner Comments

problem #1

My 2003 CTS is starting to give me problems (140,000 miles)... I have several issues which could be related; sometimes when I crank the car and release the ignition, it’s as if it re cranks its self after it starts. (2) This past Sunday, I got into the car, turned it on and all of my settings changed (Time, seat memory, etc.). (3) This morning (5/17/11) I went to deactivate the car alarm and open the vehicle with the remote and nothing happened. I thought the battery in my remote was dead. So I manually opened the car like back in the day (with the key) and I noticed no power (all lights, bells and whistles were off). I just bought a brand new battery a month ago. About a minute later the car alarm went off. After scratching my head and turning off the alarm, the car started up when I went to crank it. WHAT THE FUDGE IS GOING ON?
