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 contact owns a 2008 Cadillac Srx. While driving approximately 35 mph, the contact noticed that the vehicle was pulling and assumed that he struck something. Approximately one month prior to the failure, he noticed fluid on the floor of his garage. The vehicle was driven to the dealer and they stated that there was a leak in the driveshaft. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified and stated that the vehicle was not included in any recalls; therefore, they were not liable for the repairs. The current mileage was 9,500 and failure mileage was 9,000. Updated 03-09-09 updated 03/13/09.

The contact owns a 2008 Cadillac Srx. While shifting from drive into park at 5 mph, the vehicle suddenly accelerated forward. The vehicle crashed into another parked vehicle, and eventually stopped 30 feet away. There were no injuries. Through online research, the contact discovered NHTSA campaign id number 08V527000 (power train:automatic transmission) for the 2004 Srx, which was identical to the failure with his vehicle. The vehicle is currently at the dealer. The current and failure mileages were 11,000.
