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 #2

While driving the engine shut down, this happened twice in the same day. My wife now refuses to drive the car and wants to sell it.

problem #1

May 172012

STS 6-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
The above vehicle was recently in a shop for brake pad replacement when my mechanic discovered that there was a leak of lubricant in the rear end of the automobile. Upon further inspection he discovered that the rear axle pinion seal was leaking. The automobile has just 60,000 miles. After checking the NHTSA he found that a recall, GM recall number 07204 had been issued for this very problem. However, when I presented the vehicle for repair this morning at marion Chevrolet Cadillac they refused to cover the problem under the recall stating the VIN does not meet the recall range. I find it untenable that GM could recall nearly 300,000 vehicles for this very issue but refuse to cover an identical problem in a vehicle that does not meet the VIN range set by GM.
