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.

2008 Cadillac CTS Owner Comments

CTS 6-cyl

While I was a passenger riding on a major interstate, in the right front passenger seat, the air bag light (on/off) on the dash/console turned from the "on" status to the "off" status. After stopping we followed onstar's directions to turn off ignition and restart the vehicle and sit in the passenger seat once again. The air bag light stayed in the "off" status. We turned the vehicle off and restarted once again. This time when I sat in the passenger seat the air bag light changed to the "on" status. The following week, my mother was a passenger in the front and the air bag light stayed in the "off" position. Last week, another passenger was in the front passenger seat and the air bag light remained in the "off" position. I took it to a dealer while out of town, and the mechanic said that the right front passenger presence module has a short and needs to be replaced. I had the front right headlight assembly replaced, but was uncomfortable allowing that dealer to replace the passenger air bag sensor. I am bringing it to my dealer to have it replaced under warranty.
