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.

I have a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero. The drivers side window was pausing while being put down. Then it started shaking when it was going up. One day when I tried to put it down the window itself didn't move. As I was driving the window proceeded to literally fall inside the door. To get it back up I had to pull up on the glass itself and push the window control to get it up. I took it to a repair shop and was told that the piece that holds the glass had broken off. They tried to glue it with a kind of glass glue. It held for about a week and then fell again. I have not put the window down since then, about six months. Now the passenger window is doing the same thing. My grandmother also has on Oldsmobile and her drivers side window has done the same thing as mine.

Alero

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles
Beginning in November 2004 the consumer began to have problems with the electrical system in the 2004 Oldsmobile Alero. When the vehicle was purchased the air bag light came on. The consumer was concerned that the air bag light will cause the air bags not to deploy in case of an accident. Also, she was concerned that the air bags would deploy when there was no accident. The vehicle has been to the repair shop 6 times due to brake problems.. when the vehicle had 20,000 miles it had to have the rotors turned and brake shoes replaced. The brakes were still making a humming noise. The dealership could not figure out why the vehicle was having problems with the air bag light or with the brakes. The cruise control, door panels, windows were inoperative. The transmission or front axle seal was leaking, the blinkers were blinking too fast, the windshield was leaking, the carpet lining was coming out of the trunk, the engine made a knocking noise, the back trim around the seats didn't fit properly, the ignition switch was replaced, the fuse box was replaced.
