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 8-cyl

The ignition switch on our 2002 dhs Cadillac went out in April, 2014; mileage 91,000. We live in cove, Oregon. We had to have it towed fro, M our garage 15 miles to legacy Ford in lagrande, Oregon. The total cost was towing $152, ignition switch installation $295.65. Due to the recent recall on ignition switches to so many other GM vehicles it seem reasonable to me that it is possible our Cadillac could be part of this recall. I would appreciate this notification being included in the recall.
