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.

I bought a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora in 2003 being a single mother of 2 children I wanted a safe car with low repair I was told the 5 star engine is the best and low maintance I paid 15.900 cash for the car on the way home it was acting fun lights flickering gas pedal sticks and you can't push it down, then the gas gauge quit working oil was leaking all over hub in the front of car went bad I took it to the shop and it needed a oil sending unit, fuel sending unit front hub job, after another 1.700 in repairs now I am hold the head gasket is ready to blow and the gage says low oil pressure I had it back to the shop and they say they don't know what is wrong.then I ws rear ended at a stop and go light due to my head lights and tail lights going on and off. My onstar don't work 3/4 of the time due to my gas gauge not working I ran out of gas and then the onstar didn't work either only if the car is running.now it also says defected airbags on the dash. Please get to the bottom of this also there was a chip in the windshild I asked is that a crack in the windshield the salesman said oh no it is not when I got it home it was a crack itn it I called and they told me you drove it off the lot there is no warranty.

Headlamps dim and flicker while driving. This happened everyday. Dealer recently replaced alternator which appears to have corrected the problem after two days of driving.

Aurora 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Purchased used 2001 oldmobile Aurora (3.5L, V-6) on June 24, 2003 with 19,200 miles. Upon leaving the lot I noticed the headlights flickering several times on way home. Called dealer and had it in shop 2 days later. Replaced alternator. June 26th, 2003 after leaving dealer still noticed lights flickering. Called dealer the next week to let them know. They stated it was just a simple change in voltage. Continued to notice flickering...so bad it is vert distracting not only to driver of vehicle but other drivers on the road. Took car in once again. Dealer stated that GM is aware of head lamp flickering and is working to correct the problems. Now I notice when my head lamps flicker the voltage screen goes crazy. In the meantime, my warranty is up on Sept. 13th 2003. So if they don't find a solution to the problem before then, will I be stuck with paying for it or will there be some sort of recall issued? was told it would be paid for but no written documentation was received. This problem can be very dangerous and could cause an accident due to decreased visibility and distraction.
