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.

2003 Oldsmobile Alero Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 112013

Alero 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission

Oil all over the place, all over the belts and alternator. Call Mechanics and they can't get my car in until the beginning of the year. Bought a year ago for $2200, not worth it from the problems I have had.

I would never buy this model of car again. Possibly would never buy an Oldsmobile again. This was the newest car I had ever owned, gave my 1995 Ford station wagon to my mom, it is still running strong. I had just had the oil changed a month ago and did not take any large trips anywhere.
