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 Escalade Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012009


  • 80,000 miles


The contact owns a 2002 Cadillac Escalade. The contact stated that the driver side door hinge was worn and hanging one half inch to three quarters of an inch from its housing. Whenever it would rain, water would leak into the vehicle through the top of the door. The bushings and pins were replaced in 2010 but to no avail. The failure persisted and the dealer advised that a diagnostic test would be needed in order to repair the vehicle. The vehicle was neither diagnosed nor repaired. The current mileage was 124,000 and the failure mileage was 80,000.
