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 #4

The turn signal lamps become intermittent or inoperative. This is an actual recall on 1999 to 2001 models but for some reason not on the 2002 through 2004 models. I have just purchased this vehicle and have not yet had it repaired.
