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.

Its December and I drive 25miles to and from work every day and I don't need to get stuck at a light a 630 am. The car had stalled on me b4 and I never got it fixed but this time I thought I better do it. I just had put the car in the shop "Dealer" for the 'oilcoil' problem and tht was 350.00 2weeks ago.I thought man If I put another 3 or 4 hundred dollars in to this IM not. So i took it to the Cadillac dearlership and told them the proble. and you know what the fixed it.Problem; vacuum hose electrical wasn't hooked up properly cost 86.00 dollars you know that EKG thing for cars they hook it up and find the problem.I thought damn...alright, cause this brutha was looking at 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora's and the price was right.So go get it still getting the 2001 Aurora and giving the 97 Aurora to my brother . My 97 has 153,900 miles on it. its fast love V8.
