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.

Sometimes they work, sometimes not. Sometimes they get a little exciting and go crazy and spazz.

Alero V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 95,000 miles

The turn-signal clicking sound would randomly come on and stay on, without the actual turn signal being would get slow and speed up spastically...annoying as hell.

There is not recall on the hazard flasher/blinkers switch, but there has been a short in it since we purchased the car. We had a 99 Olds Alero that had the same problem and there was a recall on it. The blinkers will stip working or flash quickly and buzz. The only way to make this dang thing work is to giggle, pound on the dash board or pull the hazard switch off the dash to get the blinkers to work half way decently.. DO NOT BUY THE ALERO's... NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS>
