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.

2012 Cadillac SRX Owner Comments

SRX 6-cyl

Late in the first year after we purchased the car we noticed from the back how low the fuel tank extended toward the ground. We didn't think much of this until this year we noticed a dent on the tank. I checked the new Srxs at the dealer and found the newer models had much more ground clearance on the tank. We thought there must have been some problems and they had changed the tank clearance to correct this. I have not yet contacted the dealer to see if a correction can be made on my car. This appears to be a possible cause for a fire with the tank if you backed over a high curb with the tank extending past the back wheels toward the rear bumper.

The vehicle suddenly accelerated while slowing the vehicle while still in drive and while pulling the vehicle into a curb parking. The acceleration could not be stopped using brakes and struck a parked car in front of the Cadillac.
