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 #2

Alero 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


Last year I had a rubbing type sound coming from my front end, upon taking it to tuffy I learned that I needed a left wheel bearing. I replaced the wheel bearing and 7 months later I had to replace the right wheel bearing. Currently I am being told that the wheel bearings still needs to be replaced. My ABS lights are on and there is a popping sound when my car turns. I have a new tie rod so that rules the noise coming from it. The bearings are expensive to replace and I only had the car three years and I had to replace bearings, the manifold intake, a tie rod, and hoses.

Alero 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Without warning caller hears a noise, and at the same time, the bell sounds, and the dash lights come on. The lights that come on are the anti lock brake lights. The track off light, and the service engine light. For only a few seconds the brakes will not work. Has had wheel bearings replaced in the front, and is about to get it done again.
