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 #1

Alero 3400

  • Automatic transmission

Very soon after purchase front end noises most noticeable at low speeds with wheels turned, happens in forward and reverse. Have reported to dealer on several occasions during routine services, shrugged shoulders seems to be the common response.

Noisy fan blower, supposedly fixed under warranty, still noisy, no longer under warranty.

Dash board warning lights now coming on ie; service engine soon, abs, trac off, will stay off briefly after restart of engine.

Shorty after front brake job now a clunk with first brake application, both forward and reverse.

No this is not my fathers Oldsmobile, his worked!
