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.

I have a 2005 Cadillac Deville I purchased it used with 48,000 miles I have had it about three years and the leather seats are horrible. They are not comfortable for long distant riding. I had a 1994 Deville and there is no comparison.

DeVille 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Cadillac Deville. The contact stated that the driver side seat does not support the driver. In addition, the metal part underneath the driver side is poking his rear end and lower back. Due to how uncomfortable the failure is, the contact cannot drive the vehicle for a long period of time. He has taken the vehicle to the shop three times, but they have not been able to repair it successfully. The current mileage is 26,000 and failure mileage was 20,000.
