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.

Catera 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


- while driving the 2001 Cadillac Catera with 76000 miles failure for 15 miles he turned the seat heater on. The contact had been driving for a half hour when he turned the seat heater off because it felt hot and he smelled something burning. The contact stopped the vehicle and noticed the back of the passenger's coat was burned, and that there was a hole in the back. The front passenger seat had a black burn mark in the middle of the seat, near the door. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but it had not been diagnosed. The current mileage was 76882.
