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.

The contact owns a 2008 Cadillac Cts. While driving at various speeds, the vehicle would rattle. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the failure was undetermined. The vehicle was then taken to an independent mechanic where it was informed that the front struts needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. In addition, the contact stated that the check engine, the ABS and the traction control warning lights illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was determined that the electric control module needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. However, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 50,000.

Purchased 2008 Cts upon driving car home I noticed a vibration. Took back to dealer next day. Had to wait 3 weeks to get service on vehicle and found out at that time there is a service bulletin on this car and the dealer is not to try to fix car. Went to GM and they agreed to change tires but this did not fix the problem, the vibration continued. Trying to come to some sort of agreement with GM and after 9 months, nothing. Took car back to dealer for tire rotation and requested "road force balance" and the problem got worse. The vibration starts at 40mph and the steering wheel is shaking. The problem is either with the wheels or the tires.

Brakes squealing. Technician says it's defective brake pads and GM is aware. No get well date. Right front strut had to be replaced, still makes the same creaking noise.
