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.

problem #2

Mar 202009

LS 3.8L DcV8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles


This was an unexpected situation for this engine to fail, even at 120,000 mi. The car has had good service through the years. I got no warnings for engine failure. It would cost more money to repair than the value of the car. My engine light did not come on nor was there any noise. I took the car to the dealer, a reputable auto service company and they both told me it was the engine, possibly jumped timing and locked up the engine. Both told me it would cost about $5,000 for the engine and $2-3,000 for labor.
