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.

2002 Cadillac DeVille Owner Comments

DeVille 8-cyl

1. (a) my Cadillac (dhs-2002) operates in a dangerous and defective manner that could cause accidents. I have had the vehicle serviced no less than 16 times to fix equipment failures, including those which could be major safety issues, to no avail. (B) the airbag warning light has come on two separate occasions, though the bag never deployed. (C) the vehicle suddenly stalled when making turns. 2. (a) my vehicle contains "automatic rain sensors" for its windshield wipers. The wipers come on violently (highest level), even when not turned on, and though it is not raining. The danger is sudden distraction, which could easily cause an accident when merging with traffic and in other dangerous driving situations. They also come on suddenly when passing radio towers. The date set forth below is the first incident; it continues to happen. (B) the airbag warning light creates fear in the driver, as we are unsure as to if and when the airbag will deploy. If it where to deploy erroneously while we were driving, the results could be catastrophic. (C) on two occasions, while making turns in traffic, the vehicle stalled, which could have led to a serious accident. 3. (a) I have returned the vehicle to my dealer for service on numerous occasions. No parts have been replaced, nor has any repair been effected. It appears that this is a systemic issue, and I suspect that it affects all Cadillac similarly equipped. (B) the airbags where replaced on two occasions which has, as least temporarily, solved the problem. (C) on two occasions, sensors were replaced which where allegedly the cause of the problem (last time this occurred was 5/25/05) the foregoing represent critical electronic system failures that could result in fatal accidents. The inability of GM to resolve the automatic wiper issue, together with multiple repairs of other sensors that caused major system failures requires investigation into the safety of this vehicle.
