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 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles


I bought this vehicle from a local caddy dealer in June, 2006. It had 18,000 miles when purchased. One month later, it developed transmission troubles which required rebuilding the transmission by the dealer (under guarantee) Approximately 11 months later, one month ago, the transmission acted up again at $34,000 miles and dealer claims not his responsibility and now wants $3.400 to repair. This doesn't seem right. Incidentally, in checking over this car, there are signs that the vehicle has been hit but no mention was made to me as a buyer. Do you have any suggestions of where I go from here? Would appreciate any help.
