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.

Acadia 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles
Noticed a sudden shaking in the car when driving more than 25mph. Felt the car was unsafe to drive, so left it at a local tire and auto shop for inspection the next morning. The technician called to inform us that there should be 6 bolts that attach the driveshaft to the front differential. The car only had 3 of the 6 bolts left and of those 1 was bent. They were also all loose. He suspected that they were not tightened correctly at the factory. The car was towed to the nearest dealership for inspection and repair. This car was purchased in 3/07 and currently has 12,000 miles.
