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. Notes: There are serious power steering concerns for the Traverse. Data shows that owners are having a difficult time with their power steering quitting, particularly at low speeds.

Was in a motor vehicle accident. I was going approximately 10 mph. Other driver accelerated to unknown speed and struck my vehicle in the driver door. Door was crushed to the point that it was up against my thigh. Neither of the side airbags went off. Vehicle has approximately $10,600 in damage and I am recovering from a fracture in my lower back. Curious with this kind of damage and injury why the airbags did not deploy.

Vehicle was driven back home after a 20 min journey. Switched vehicle off, removed keys, I came back to remove last bag from vehicle - white smoke was coming from under hood. Tried to put out with a small fire extinguisher. Flames now coming from hood and out of front grille. Called 911. Within 20 mins car was a total loss, with damage to adjacent home. Informed insurer and GM customer care. GM claims dept have investigated and no GM fault determined. 18 month old vehicle must not catch fire by itself, more action required. Vehicle is now in the hands of our insurer. Please note we are in Canada - we also have informed Transport - but we feel the us authorities should be aware. Seabright, nova scotia, B3Z 3A3.
