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.

2002 Oldsmobile Aurora Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 242006

Aurora 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,282 miles


: the contact stated that every 1500 miles, the steering wheel made a popping and cracking noise. The vehicle was taken to a service dealer, where the steering sector shaft was lubricated, however the dealer was unable to determine the cause of the problem. The repair worked intermittently, but then had to be redone later.
