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.

2001 Oldsmobile Alero Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 162003

Alero 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


I was stopped for a red light; the car behind me was coming to a stop when he was impacted by a vehicle traveling over 45 mph which forced that vehicle into my car, pushing me into the vehicle in front of me. My husband was sitting in the rear passenger seat on the left side; his seat belt shattered and released him from the seat belt causing him to hit the driver seat. I sent an email to GM motors on my concern for this issue. They have since come and looked at the car and report it is ok for this activity to take place. GM told my husband that they are not responsible for the problem and that our insurance can cover the replacement of the belt. My concern is that I have a child. How can I be sure I will not experience this problem again but next time to my child" GM refused to comment on this concern. All Oldsmobile Alero 2001 owners beware; the back seat is where the law tells you is the safest for children. If this is true, why did the seat belt malfunction" I am getting rid of this car. I will not support GM products if this is the responsibility they take in this issue. Which is none.
