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.

STS 6-cyl

  • 90,000 miles
Keyless door entry unlock fails. The outer handle has faulty wiring with many cars sent in for replacement and no recall performed yet. In this instance, the door lock failing can lock the driver in the car during an accident or fire and, if the person is unresponsive due to the accident, someone on the exterior of the car cannot enter through the drivers door. This poses a significant safety risk that has yet to be addressed. Through my research, it commonly affects 2005 & 2006 Cadillac Sts model cars with the keyless entry & keyless ignition.
