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 6-cyl

  • 34,000 miles
At first, the car wasn't running straight. When I drove straight on an interstate, the steering wheel was about five degrees clockwise. Therefore, I went to the local Cadillac dealer, [xxx], for a wheel alignment. After the alignment, the car ran pretty good, until it ran over a small bump on the road. When I ran over the bump, the car suddenly ran toward the right. I tried to turn left, but it didn't work for about half a second. After half a second, I controlled the car, and it worked fine. I made an U turn, and went to that place again, and it happened again. I went home, grab my meter and my thermometer, and went back to that place. The road temperature was 33.1 degrees, and there was no ice on the road. The bump was about 4 inches over the road. I took the car to the dealer next day, and they checked almost everything. However, they're unable to identify the problem. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
