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.

As I was driving on a highway, my sunroof blew completely off of my vehicle, hit and damaged the front of another vehicle (a SUV) and from the impact of that hit, it was struck a motorcyclist.

Gross moldy odor emanating from the HVAC system caused by what appears to be a defect in the system which allows moisture to condense on the coils causing mold and bacteria to be dispersed throughout the vehicle. GM attempts to address this expansive issue by adding deodorant to the system and then hope consumers will go away.

I have a 2013 Cts Cadillac and the headlight assemblies fog up on the inside of the assembly. This happens when it rains or is wet dealer replaced the headlight assemblies but these are worst than the originals. Dealer now says this is normal thedealer refers to a bulletin 01-08-42-001J which states that lights might exhibit a fine mist or white fog on the inside of the lamp lens. The bulletin states that it requires 2 to 6 hours to clear the lamp and works better if vechicle in motion with headlights on..I've had the headlights on bright up to 2 hours and the assemblies still have some fog inside them. This decreases the effectiveness of the headlights and creates future electrical probelms because of the moisture within the headlight assembly. The fog shows up when you are driving the vechicle with the headlights on. Last date this happened was 1/15/2016. Car has a little more than 17000 miles on and was bought new. This had been a continuing problem that happens irregular.

Sunroof has a rattle. Can be heard at moderate speeds over moderate terrain. Of course the bumpier the roads, the more rattling can be heard.
