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.

2006 Cadillac SRX Owner Comments

At random the blinker and electrical system fail in my 2006 Cadillac Srx V6 AWD. I was driving and turned on the blinker to make a turn and the blinker did not sound and did not function. This problem does not happen regularly it is a 1 in a 100. I have had my Cadillac in to a Cadillac dealer multiple times to have this corrected and I fear that more cars may have this problem and an accident may occur. At times where the blinker fails the radio also may skip stations.
