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

CTS 3.6L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 148,988 miles


When I bought the car I drove it for two months the transmission started slipping. I was told I need an other one so I found another one had it put in. Some kind of Cadillac 04 it start it up get it home three hour later it would not turn over all light came on .but it still did not start .I will not buy another . Then I was told it need a starter I bought anew one and still will not start if dose it only run for a bet and I can't go any where because it'll not start again and it kill the battery If I could I would junk the son a bitch . I thank it pretty damn sad when you have a car for two years and only it for two month . You can turn off the car and you turn the ignition back on with out the key in it .
