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.

I own a 2005 Cadillac Sts. I notice a loud rattling noise followed by sluggish and stalling engine while in the midst of driving. I took the car to the dealership and told me there was a problem with my timing chain. While at the dealership at least 3 other cars of the same type complained of the same problem. This is not safe while the consumer is driving and the car begins to stall at 55 or 60 mph. This repair costs over $3100.
