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.

DeVille DHS V8

we have to add oil frequently plus it is a mess where we park it. Cadillac should have to stand behind their products. They are ripping people off.

DeVille DHS 4.0L

My parents bought this 2001 Cadillac DHS vehicle, used in 2003 and have had issues with it ever since. Most recently was a $2500 dollar repair to fix a top end water leak, and lower end oil pan gasket leak. The engine needed to be removed! The repair was made and the vehicle was given to me. I hadn't had it a month before it over heated! This time the radiator cracked and allowed wated to go into the transmission. This time the repair is going to cost $1000 dollars! Does anyone have a P.O.C. at the Better Business Bureau?
