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 #3

DeVille North Star V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,456 miles


I was driving with my 15 month old infant and my 4 year ok daughter. The car accelerated and would not stop speeding up until I shut it off. It was terrifying!!!!! My car is now at the shop. I've learned from multiple forums that this year make and model have had this issue numerous times. Cadillac needs to issue a recall and fix this!

DeVille V8

Spent over $1500 and did not have use of care for over a month, but problem still exists. No one seems to be able to pin point the problem although there have been several suggestions thrown around.

DeVille DeExcellence

The car suddenly acceleratied. I was pulling into an angle parking space in a ramp, my foot was NOT on either petal, the car was just creeping in when suddenly it went flying into the concrete wall, I hit the brakes, but it was the WALL that stopped the car, not the brake. Sufficent damage to front end, car towed to repair.
