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.

2005 Cadillac Escalade Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012006

Escalade 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,850 miles


Had a front end collision with another vehicle and none of my airbags deployed. The vehicle was 4 weeks old and had 1850 miles at the time of the accident. Called Cadillac customer service and was given an airbag history lesson via telephone from someone that had never seen my vehicle or inspected it for damage after the accident. At the end of our conversation I was told all was ok, none of my airbags should have deployed and not to worry about it. The entire front end of my vehicle was knocked off, the frame has multiple cracks and is bent as a result of the collision and the collision center is 90% certain the vehicle is not repairable.
