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.

2008 Cadillac XLR Owner Comments

Traveling 65mph on a freeway, my Cadillac Xlr suddenly was uncontrollable; it then started to spin; was hit B a semi and continued to spin. I have had electrical problems with this car from day one. The morning before the accident the read out said wait for stabilitrak. I know there was a malfunction that caused the car to become unstable. I have seen mention of this for the Xlr on the internet. When I got to a garage and got out, the car locked me out with the key in the car so I am sure of an electrical issue.
