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.

Approximately 2 weeks (03/18/11) prior to repairs the front of the vehicle 2007 Cadillac Escalade had a "shaking noise" the slower you drove the more noise it made. We took the vehicle to the dealership who quoted $1,000 for repairs. At the time we dropped it off the service manager made us aware that there was a "bulletin from General Motors " about the problem that it was "normal wear and tear and they would not issue a recall." It was found by the dealership that the front jounce bumpers and front struts and mounts needed to be replaced. I contacted GM service line while it was still in the shop and had to pay for the repairs in order to have the vehicle to drive. I had numerous phone calls to GM and they stated "normal wear and tear" and your 50,000 bumper to bumper warranty does not cover it since it had 62,926 miles on it. I requested a district supervisor review and the outcome was the same. We have had Cadillac for 25+ years and some with 200,000+ miles on them and never had this type of problem and treatment from anyone. We received no satisfaction or consideration about our problem from GM except for them to repeatedly state "normal wear and tear."

2007 Cadillac Escalade squealing noise while driving at any speed. Customer states it happens at any speed. Also has a thumping noise in the rear while driving at highway speeds. Squealing sounds like it is coming from the brakes. The dealer stated the diagnosis for the rattling noise was due to the stabilizer bar links being loose. The consumer stated the problem still persists and provided a document from GMC's website stating the defect has to do with A/C air belt compressor conditioning. The dealer informed the consumer there was no fix for the problem at the present time. The dealer found the stabilizer links loose.
