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.

The 1999 Oldsmobile Alero is a piece of junk. I never had so many problems with a car in my lifetime. I will NEVER buy another GM product again. The power steering was replaced. The water pump was replaced. Two power windows broke. Its been one problem after another. This is the worst car I have ever owned. GM you stink.

We bought this car in December my husband test drove it and paid cash for it. I got in the car at night to run up to the grocery store and the dash lights wouldn't come on. We replaced the roll switch, the whole unit on the steering wheel and put a new dash unit in still no difference. i cant tell how fast i am going at night! it is insane. the radio lights don't work either. But if you open the door or roll the switch on the dash up the dome light comes on
