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

The license plate back up light assembly to my Cadillac Cts 2003 mysteriously came up missing. This is a costly piece to replace. I have called multiple salvage yards to find out that a lot of them receives 2-3 calls per week for this part. I talked to a claim representative at state farm and he so happened to have had 3 open claims within one month. All conversations lead this to being a defect in the making of the vehicle. Not having this part, leaves my brake lights exposed.
