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.

Ascender LS 4.2L 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


I have this car for only about 2 years and a couple months and have already had to fix the transmission 3 times. the air in the back vents only work some times. Now I can't even pump gas into my car plus it smells like gas so bad in my car I'm scared to drive it. This is a horrible car it's one thing after another and the worst thing about this mess is I'm still paying on this pieces of crap car. I don't know what to do HELP!!!!!

This is really horrible. I have to drive with my windows down because of the strong gas odor. Because I need the vehicle to get to work while living on a tight buget, I have no choice but to drive this vehicle while fearing for my life at the same time planning an escape route in case of a fire from the smell of gas.
