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.

1998 Oldsmobile Aurora Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 252006

Aurora 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,700 miles


I own a 1998 Aurora. While traveling on the interstate at approximately 65 mph, the entire front left tire assembly (wheel, brake system, struts, etc) separated from the car, causing the air bags to deploy and destroying the front driver's side of the car. The cause of the separation is unknown. The car did not hit or run over any foreign object on the highway. The tire was recovered with the strut" and bracket assemblies" still attached to the tire. I'm filing a complaint to determine if any other incidents have been reported in hopes of preventing any other Aurora owners from experiencing such a life threatening incident. The incident is being investigated by the insurance company in hopes of determining a cause of the failure.
