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.

Aurora 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 83,000 miles

I had this Oldsmobile for a couple of months and it started to do a really hard shift for me. Took it to the mechanic and they had it for three months trying to get it to act up for them and it never did. Each time I got it back it would shift hard on me. Hundreds of dollars later they just replace the whole transmission. That did not fix the problem. I took the car back in for a month and they did a GM upgrade/computer reflash and it fixed the problem. I had to spend nearly 3000. on it. And it is suppose to be reliable. next thing you know the fuel injectors all went bad. this car never stops dishing it out.
