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.

DeVille Deville 4.6L V8

This Problem concerns my 2001 Cad. Devile. The problem started before I purchased the car. After we had purchased the car and driven it a few hundred we started having trouble with the egnition switch, The problem was the Car would not start. unless we engaged the ignition Switch numerous time, Usually within 5-10 minutes it would Engage the Starter then it would run fine for a couple of weeks. This was a pain in the butt but was managable. Then on 12/16/2012 we were turning on to my Daughters road from a dual highway highway when the car stalled as we were aproaching a Ralroad track. We applied the brakes and was able to get the car stopped very close to the track. Then the Ignition would not engage the starter, It was a long time before we were able to get tthe car started . this is a critical component and should be repaired asap. I will take my car to the Dealer on Wed. Hopefully they will be able to find the solution to this critical issue..
