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.

The 3.6L motor leaks so much oil that when it gets low it creates a misfire condition and cause the vehicle misfire light to come on and power loss to happen. Check your oil often!!!!

The contact owns a 2006 Cadillac Srx. The contact stated that while accelerating, the reduced power to engine warning light flashed on the dashboard. The contact was driving 65 mph when the vehicle suddenly reduced speed to 20 mph, almost causing a crash. The contact stated that once the vehicle was shut off and restarted, the vehicle would then reset itself and resume normally. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and the dealer was unable to duplicate or locate the failure because the check engine light was not illuminated at the time. The failure mileage was 65,000.

The timing chain/belt in 2006 Cadillac Srx is defective. It could be the crank shaft rubbing on the timing chain. I called GM there is a recall for 2007 - 2010 the response I received was how long do I expect GM to own my vehicle. I have spoke to several car dealers who tell me this is a problem with this year and model and fixing it will not stop it from happening again. The estimate from the dealer is $3500 I am very upset over this.
