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 EXT Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 092006

Escalade EXT 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


Defective equipment. Ignition switch broke. Aaa sent locksmith. Locksmith said he has changed approx. 14 of these in last 1 and 1/2 weeks. Brass part and spring break off leaving ignition dead/unable to start or move vehicle. I was fortunate this happened in my driveway and not out on the road. $347 later and it can happen again at any time. Before locksmith showed up Cadillac wanted to disconnect transmission and drop drive shaft place on flatbed to Transport to dealership. What would that have cost me? consumers should not be held hostage with this poor quality part.
