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.

2004 Cadillac XLR Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 162015

XLR 8-cyl

  • 86,845 miles


I purchased a pre-owned 2004 Xlr from the dealership the car store in riverside. Upon storing it in my garage, I found the next morning an overwhelming gasoline smell. Upon taking it to my local GM dealer for inspection, I was told that the issue was no longer covered by extended protection by Cadillac as it ended after a 10 year period in January of 2014. This is a known defect with the design of the fuel tank system and is not a recall item which is extraordinarily dangerous and should be dealt with at not cost to the owner of the vehicle since it is a design flaw and not at fault of the owner.
