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.

When driving the turn signals will work and then not work at random and this concerns me, it can create a serious and dangerous situation

The above problems are for the same thing at different times. The rotors on the car have gone out 3 times. The second time they went out I had to argue with Oldsmobile to fix them. They tried to tell me it was my driving making them go bad. I drive interstate to and from work - no hard stops, no stop-N-go traffic. Now they have gone bad again after the 2nd time they changed them - after only 6K miles. They refuse to pay for them. When we called customer care they informed us that they used a "new tool" the last time they "fixed" my rotors - which obviously didn\\'t help. I had a cavalier for 6 years and never once had to change the rotors!! this is just factory defect they they should be liable for.
