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 2009 Cadillac Srx. While driving at 30 mph, the "reduce engine speed" warning message illuminated which caused the vehicle to decelerate to 5 mph on the highway. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 130,073.

The car serge's all the time, the motor sounds like a diesel when you start it for about 10 seconds then goes away. Had the oil changed and did everything I and the mechanics could do and it is still there. The key keeps getting stuck and hard to start. This Cadillac Srx only has 82K miles and this has been going on for over 25K miles. Guess I just never need to by a Cadillac again.
