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.

2001 Cadillac Eldorado Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 112004

Eldorado 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles


On two occasions, my mother drove to grocery stores, parked her 2001 el dorado Cadillac, shopped, got back in the car and put it reverse, to back out of the parking space, put it in drive, began to accelerate and the brakes failed. The first time she almost hit a pedestrian. The second time she ended up blowing a stop sign and ended up in the middle of oncoming traffic before the brakes engaged. There were two service calls regarding the problem with guy hill Cadillac in san diego and another service call with de la fuente Cadillac in el cajon California. All three service calls resulted in the same response. The problem could not be duplicated.
