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

(reported on)

Alero GLS 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,000 miles


One beautiful day in Spring 2006 I'm leaving the house for work, very very late, and right away I notice my ride is wobbly. After walking all around the car, I see a flat tire. Problem was a broken chrome alloy wheel, which had to be replaced by a black steel wheel from a 2001 Monte Carlo, since the standard wheels for Aleros was 15 inches. It happened again with another wheel last year, and the two remaining chrome wheels have to be replaced soon.
