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.

2007 Cadillac STS Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 182008

STS 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 16,485 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Cadillac Sts. The contact stated that the differential seal did not meet GM's specifications for the 2007 model Sts. The vehicle dragged during acceleration. When he shifted into reverse, the differential jammed and prevented the vehicle from moving. The contact also experienced difficulty maintaining proper control of the vehicle. He received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign id number 07V589000 (power train:axle assembly:axle shaft:seal). The vehicle was taken to a dealer and they stated that they would get to him when they could. When the vehicle jammed, it threw the occupants forward and injured the contact's 4-year old child. The current mileage was 16,515 and failure mileage was 16,485.
