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.

Escalade 8-cyl

  • 150,000 miles
While trying to enter the vehicle the door handle came off in our hands not allowing us to enter the vehicle on a busy street. I contacted GM who has refused to replace it stating that my vehicle is out of warranty. However, given the overwhelming number of owners with this same issue, this is a design flaw and owners shouldn't have to pay for this $300 repair.
