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.

2003 Cadillac DeVille Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012007

DeVille 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,600 miles


I own a 2003 Cadillac Deville with 70,700 miles. The "service engine soon" warning light appeared on vehicle control panel February 1, 2007. Local car repair technician identified and cleared warning code. Suggested I take to Cadillac dealer if the warning light reappeared. Warning light came on again wed, February 7, 2007. I made an appointment with repair shop on February 9, 2007. The torque converter, seals, gaskets and valve were replaced and the car was repaired. Old part was not given to me. My concern is this same repair has been necessary for two other Cadillac Deville car owners that I personally know within the past two years. One vehicle had approximately 60,000 miles on it while the other had 150,000. When speaking with the Cadillac customer service associate, I was told there was no recall for my vehicle. They were not interested in details of my repair or concern for a possible defect.
