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.

2005 Cadillac STS Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 242005

STS 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,800 miles


The contact's wife drove the vehicle to the grocery store. She parked the vehicle and went in the store. When she came out she noticed people were looking over an embankment. She realized then that the car had rolled backward over the embankment. A tow truck came and pulled the vehicle up, and then the car was driven home. The engineer at the dealership checked the vehicle and said there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. However the contact felt that the electrical system was faulty. The consumer stated the vehicle has a new keyless ignition system which allows the vehicle to be left in neutral rather than park when the driver exits the vehicle. Updated 01/04/06.
