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.

2004 Cadillac SRX Owner Comments

My 2004 cad. Srx showed a left rear flat tire. I pulled the vehicle to a level, asphalted, scenic overlook area, 23 miles from page, AZ. I could not get the shifter from drive into park gear, nor would the key turn or release from the ignition. I got out to check and change tire, spare would not release, either. I called on-star, gave emergency details, to first advisor, then advance diagnostics. I got out of car, it surged, backwards, with the emergency brake, completely on, and it accelerated, taking me with it, I pushed away, and it kept accelerating over the scenic overlook, being destroyed. On-star never contacted the police, ambulance, or me, even 1 week after the accident, I had to call them and request the audio or transcript of the malfunctions, and crash.
