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

problem #4

2004 Cadillac Srx has "service stability control" message come up and reading several forums, seems to be a common occurrence with these vehicles. From what I've read, the condition gets worse to the point of endangering the driver and passengers. There needs to be a recall to fix this problem before people start getting injured. Also keep getting "check tire pressure" warning without the tires being low.

SRX 8-cyl

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.

SRX 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,500 miles
The contact stated tire pressure monitoring sensors were defective. The manufacturers recommended tire pressure be 32 psi. However, within 24 hours the sensors suggested the pressure dropped in all four tires. This caused the warning lights to illuminate, signaling low tire pressure. The sensors provided a false reading which alerted the contact that air should be added to the tires. This caused improper pressure to be added, resulting in over inflation. He took the vehicle to the dealer three times for this problem. Each time the dealer calibrated the sensors. This procedure temporarily remedies the problem.
