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.

2009 GMC Acadia Owner Comments

problem #1

  • 10,000 miles


My client was driving a 2009 GMC Acadia (acquired 09-03-2008) on interstate 10 near marriana Florida on 08-08-09 when the car caught on fire and burned completely. My client, her daughter, ann and ann's 2 young boys were traveling to a destination in Florida. Fortunately one of the boys needed to go to the bathroom so they stopped along side the interstate. The car burned up in front of their eyes.. we have received no reports of the cause yet. I have a lot of photographs. Fortunately, no one was burned - but the car and all of its contents were burned completely.
