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.

2004 Oldsmobile Alero Owner Comments

problem #2

Alero 6-cyl

  • miles


While driving down a street a car ran a stop sign causing a T-bone collision. My airbags never deployed because of my airbags not deploying I hit my head on the front window pane. If the airbag had deployed I would have never hit the front window causing my two head contusions, sprained neck, and herniated discs.

Alero 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,300 miles
: the contact stated the driver's seat is not properly secured to the floor. The seat moves back and forth while driving. The dealer replaced the seat riser underneath the seat. This did not remedy the problem. The dealership determined the actual floor of the vehicle was defective. The dealership temporarily fixed this by inserting foam rubber between the seat riser and the floor.
