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.

2009 Cadillac SRX Owner Comments

problem #1

The chrome overlay on the inside door handle separated from the base metal of the door handle exposing a sharp edge on the inner side of the door handle, which cannot be readily visible until you pull on the handle when trying to open the door from the inside. The chrome overlay peeled up slightly exposing a sharp edge of the chrome that could cut the hand. The part is not a very expensive part, and the incident is not a major incident, but the separated chrome overlay could cause slicing of the hand or finger when trying to open the door. It seems to be a quality issue.
