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.

The contact owns a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada. While driving approximately 25 mph on normal road conditions, the contact smelled a burning odor. In addition, the headlights operated intermittently when activated at night. There were no warning indicators illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for a diagnostic. The technician stated that the failure was related to the wiring system. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic eight times for identical failures, but they still persist. The contact was concerned of the safety risk involved. The failure and current mileages were unknown.

While driving the left front tire would make a loud noise, thus distracting the consumer. The dealer was been notified. Ph the right front tire had a high whistle. The dealer was unable to fix, stating that this happens after the vehicle reaches 20K miles, and greased the axle(s). The light underhood was inoperative. The dealer replaced the underhood light, lamp assembly, (stop), tail, and turn signal light underhood. The outside mirrors would not stay in place. The dealer replaced both modules per bulletin 02-08-64-027/both side mirror actuators. Scc
