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.

CTS 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 17,200 miles


: the contact stated there are several things wrong with the vehicle. The check coolant light and the check engine light illuminated on the dashboard. The dealership determined the radiator was damage and attempted to repair the radiator four times. The first three repairs performed by the dealer in an attempt to repair the radiator were unavailable. The fourth time, the dealership determined the problem was with the water pump and the water pump was replaced. The fuel pump was also found to be defective and was replaced. The check engine light illuminated on the dashboard prior to the fuel pump problems. The drive shaft was defective causing the vehicle to become inoperative. The crs light illuminated in the vehicle. There was an unknown part replaced to repair the crs light. The driver's power window worked intermittently making a grinding noise and the dealer repaired the window. The wiring was in backwards on the passenger seat causing only half of the seat to move. The dealership corrected the wiring to repair the seat.
