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.

Cadillac Srx turbo purchased 7/26/10. November 2010 @ 4000 miles turbo failed to operate and poor acceleration, dealer would have to order recall parts and would let me know when available. Temporary repair to hose made. In March 2011, (@ 6000 miles) attempted to start cold engine and heard noise, and some smoke without moving car. Luckily the car was in my driveway when this "catastrophic engine failure" occurred. Car towed to dealer. Dealer determined that the piston rod was thrown and put a hole in the side of the engine. Car held while dealer investigated cause. Next day advised of cause and told that correction is replacement of the engine. In March, the service dept. Told me they knew nothing about an engine recall only a turbo hose and power steering recall. Dealer has replaced engine and "done all recalls." I am afraid to pick up the car, and unsure of dealers ethics. I never received any letter of any kind about the safety recalls on my new car. I have never used regular gas in the vehicle.
