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.

Hood hydraulics bar doesn't stay up on front.rear hydraulics hatch door doesn't stay up. Brake line is rotted yet was garaged for most of its life.caddy repair noticed this. Front and rear differentials are bad.they are leaking.brought it in because of the noise to mechanic and too costly to repair. Extended warranty was useless. They didn't cover it although it states they cover differentials if... loud noise on acceleration. Very costly repairs and dangerous.

Power steering engages on its own and causes problems when I am turning into traffic. There is a problem with the power steering pump that is causing it to turn only when in motion and it is still hard to turn.

I have been hearing a rattle(front end) for 2 years while driving the vehicle and inspected by jacking up car and visually inspecting. When I was driving the car on the highway the steering wheel will jerk to the right and want to go to another lane and the stability control light will come on. I found a inch and a half gap in frame that is rusted and was never welded. The gap is under the drivers side frame rail under car. It appears to have been there for a long time due to metal fatigue and rust. I took pictures of the area. The frame could break due to this and makes the vehicle a safety hazard. I do feel safe to drive this car and the idea of other vehicles with this defect as I have searched online and founds others with the same complaint. I also do not feel safe selling this car as it is a danger on the road. Please me contact me by email. Thank you
