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.

2002 Oldsmobile Alero Owner Comments

problem #3

Alero 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 97,500 miles


The accelerator pedal on my 2002 olds Alero is sticking. The first time this happened I was going down a mountain I live on and had to brake the entire time; I have never had to do that before. The second time it happened I was ended up going 40 on a flat road and my foot never hit the gas pedal. This has happened on several occasions since then and I'm not sure how to fix it. Thank you.
