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 Bravada Owner Comments

  • 48,000 miles


2001 Oldsmobile Bravada with 48,000 miles on it. The engine literally exploded while we were driving it and needed the engine and several other parts replaced. No reason was given to us by the dearlership for the malfunction. Now October, 27,2003. The electrical system is malfuntioning. The headlights turn off when you turn on the turn signal, the turn signals turns on when you blow the horn. This morning the car was completley dead, can't even take keys out of ignition. The car is only three years old!
