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.

-the contact stated that he purchased a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero and the horn would sound at anytime. The contact stated that he had to take the fuse out of the horn to keep it from sounding. The contact took the vehicle to a repair shop and was told that the vehicle had a defective horn pad and that the steering column and airbag would also need to be replaced if the horn pad is replaced. The vehicle had approximately 70,000 miles at the time of the failure. The horn has been replaced. Updated 02/22/07.

Horn does not work when the weather is warm/hot. Does seem to work sometimes when the weather is cold. This has caused 3 very serious close calls. The horn is a safety precaution and without it my self and my family are in serious danger of an accident.
