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 #4

Alero 4-cyl

I noticed during the thanksgiving holiday 2014 that my turn signals work when they want to. I was turning right and my mom was riding with me when she noticed that my turn signals was not working left or right. So we made it to our doctors appointment and when we were leaving they working. It's weird because by changing the bulbs the turn signals are still going in and out when they want too. And we noticed light fluid leakage but it was not leaking in November when I brought my very own first car for cash and I had the oil changed so I took it back to jiffy lubes and the tech could not find a problem, this week January 21, 2014 my steering wheel is making this strange whistling noise when I make a turn, and my security light has came on and will not go off. So I decided to check the safety GM recall listing for help.

I have a 2001 olds Alero....for two years I have been having trouble with the sensor on my right front tire. The sensor caused my ABS and traction control system to fail. After many attempts to get fixed it seems that my bearing was bad. On the day that I got my car fixed 5 cars between 2 dealers were getting the same problem fixed. They were all GM cars..
