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 Bravada Owner Comments

Engine stalls driving at highway speeds. Lost brakes, steering, no control of vehicle. Luckily was on small highway, able to coast to stop and have car towed. Mechanic unable to replicate problem after keeping and driving vehicle for 10 days. Searched issue online. Horrified to read hundreds of same complaint; same vehicle, same year. Horrible stories of resulting accidents. Now news full of "ignition switch failure" issues. Believe this is what happened to me. GM not offering advice and claims no responsibility. Says "too many keys on key chain." 2 keys on mine. Vehicle not on GM recall list. Bought second hand in 2011. Now too scared to drive it. Still owe $5,000 on car. Cant afford to add that to new loan. Will not sell it to unsuspecting soul who may be killed.
