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

problem #2

Sep 202005

Aurora 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,600 miles


The contact stated car has 57,000 miles on it. When she bought the car it had 37,000 miles on it. The contact had the emission air pump and the transmission control solenoid fixed when she bought the car. She was told those things should never go bad again. Now, the same two problems recurred. On 8-30-05 she had to have the emission air pump replaced. She took the vehicle to two dealerships. They told her that these problems should never have occurred, especially twice. On 9-20-05 she had to have the passenger rear tie-rod end replaced.
