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.

2001 Oldsmobile Aurora Owner Comments

The rear fog lights are very distracting. They are as bright as the brake lights and could be confused as them. At night they can also be blinding and deter from their real purpose. European cars typically have one rear fog light in the back. This is usually one of the back-up lights. The olds uses two very bright red lights for this. Most of the time, this lights are on when they should not be.

This is not applicable to a particular vehicle I own. It is a major concern to me though. I have noticed many 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora driving around with rear fog lights on under conditions where they are not necessary. The rear fog lights look like brake lights, and more than once I thought the person was trying to stop. I feel this is very dangerous, and someone needs to investigate this issue.
