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 1998 Cadillac Deville. The pin that holds the gearshift lever to the vehicle is coming loose and will not stay in place. If the pin completely detaches, it would cause the gearshift lever to fall off the floorboard. The dealer and manufacturer has been notified. The current and failure mileages were 76,000.update 09/10/08 updated 09/11/08
