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.

There is some bills I did not keep.bought the car Sept 4th 1998. I had to have them make repairs everytime I took it in for a oil change, I drive an hour to the barboursville automall, Inc. In West va where I bought it. The computer control chip for the strut sensor is still not fixed, it flashes do not drive over 90 miles an hour constantly when I drive, which is distracting, that has been doing it since 12/02. They just put a new one in and it also does not work. The front seat heater went out in November and did not get one till April. I told them about the bumping of the car since I got it and they just put 1 strut on the car. They put grease on them and also they told me they found a piece of paper, and they changed the brakes pads and turned the rotors twice trying to fix the bumping. The paint on the car doesn't fell like it should. I have bought other Cadillac in the past years. I didn't fight the last Cadillac it was a 98 Cadillac eldorado serial number #[xxx] changed cars because it had a leak in the trunk and I took it back 5 times and they ended up packing it with super glue where everyone could see it. It was also in a hail storm and they bonded it instead of getting me new parts, it was making me to nervous so my husband bought the sts. There is other bills which I can't find but I have had trouble with this sts since I got it.I did write the Cadillac people and they said I had to take it up with the dealer which I have been with no satisfaction, I'm talking to [xxx] and my case number is 1-119401313. The Cadillac company said they would keep my letter I wrote them few years ago. I'm still wanting to drive a Cadillac, which I told [xxx] and kept telling the dealership. I haven't got the bills when I first had the trouble but someone must, [xxx] agreed that I have had it worked on every time I went for an oil change.
