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.

1998 Oldsmobile Aurora Owner Comments

My 1998 Olds Aurora began losing coolant sometime in 2005, 2006. My radiator began to leak and when I removed it to take to the repair shop, the repairman told this was just the beginning of my problems with the cooling system and I would probably be back, boy did he know something, my car began to overheat on short trips, i recognized coolant on the garage floor after sitting overnight, mechanics diagnosis was head gaskets leaking and needed replaced, actually a common occurrence with this engine because of manufacturing incompetence. This is a costly and difficult repair to make, I've had the head gaskets replaced and am still having difficulty, overheating and stalling. Is there a class action against GM pertain to this motor or can one be initiated?
