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.

problem #1

Aug 152010

CTS 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles


I had my car towed to shirey cadillac for a loud noise they said it was a timing belt that streached and will split the cost. after arguein my case I agreed over the phone to pay. The next day they called and said I have a broken rod, how the f*ck can a car let alone a cadillac with 55,000 miles have a rod knock? I brang in a print out of all my oil change records. I bought the car with 30,000 and drove awsome the lady told me that they cant find any records of the car prior ever being at a dealer. I found out where it was bought, it was steve foley cadillac they said they have one oil change in 2005. How is it that I can find that this out and that woman told me its never been to a dealer?
