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 XLR Owner Comments

Vehicle displayed warning indicator in dash that air bags were not armed when vehicle was moving. Vehicle was taken to a GM dealership and they determined that the arming switch for the air bag system is located in the driver's side "fixed" end of the driver's seat belt and was defective. I would like to know if this vehicle or other GM models have had other reports of the same problem. I assume that all their vehicles operate with the same indication system and I read recently that they are currently having similar problems on some other model vehicles. I just wanted to know if this is a isolated incident with my vehicle or a potential problem for all of this model vehicle.
