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

Srx 2004 has already had transmission rebuilt and I am trying to get throttle body also replaced after throttle did not respond and coasted backwards almost catching 3 teens running between my car and one behind me. Transmission was taken care of but hesitation on throttle has been continuous for over a year with no one telling me what was wrong. Just this week I was told throttle body needs replaced.

My 2004 Cadillac Srx has 98000 miles on it. The service stability system light comes on after driving for 20 minutes, each time I start the car. I clear the system and just drive. The car shakes while driving a bit and does pull to the right. I am not experiencing some of the problems many others are facing with this same warning, but feel I too will soon, it is getting worse. I also was forced to put in 89 octane gas at a station that didnt have super, I had a low fuel light. After 20 minutes of driving stability light came on along with check engine. I cancelled my trip and drove to my mechanic. He stated there was a misfire which may be from lower grade gas but after a fill up of super and a full day of driving check engine light is flashing. Bringing it back to get serviced I was told there was no misfire, clogged injectors norfaulty plugs. The problem was with the ECU. These cars sense a problem and "shut off" the problematic fule injector. Well mine is not problematic but the computer says it is!!! now what buy a new ECU!!! $149 for the diagnostic and over $500 for the ECU not including labor, I'm looking at a grand to fix the problem, if this is the problem!!! I really love the style and look of this car, but all the extra crap is overkill. There needs to be a recall for the stability system quick, we are going to have a Toyota situation on our hands

The consumer has run out of gas on two occasions. The vehicle is not equipped with a light that illuminates when the fuel level is low. The vehicle's computer did beep once alerting the consumer of low fuel but it did not beep again. The gas tank hold 20 gallons of fuel. The trip computer calculates the amount of miles left based on the volume in the tank. When the trip computer indicated there was 5 gallon there was only 3.25 gallons.
