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.

2005 Cadillac SRX Owner Comments

SRX 6-cyl

Thru out the ownership of this vehicle, it has had multiple signal and headlight problems, ignition, and now the suspension system defective. (quoted by GM dealership, cost will be $5,000 plus). What does it take, an accident killing someone for GM to repair/replace, whatever it takes, on this vehicle? please, I urge GM to consider stepping up to the plate and taking care of this very serious problem. We have owned 5 new Cadillac with no problems, until now. We love this car but are very hesitant to take this vehicle long distances. Please, please take care of this problem.

The back up lights do not come on. Apparently, there is a manufacturers' defect in the design. We are on our third failure. A wire that is integrated into the tailgate becomes warn.

Light bulbs for turn signals, tail lights, stop lights slip out of sockets. Design of sockets has been improved to secure bulbs but GM has not advised owners to replace the sockets. This results in numerous vehicles being operated with essential lights out of service.
