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 paint on the flanges in front of the back wheels is chipping off. This is a common problem on 2002 Bravada the vehicle is driven only on road and under normal conditions. The dealer just called me and said this is not a warranty item and I should put mud flaps on the vehicle. At this rate, the flanges would be down to bare metal in a short time. This is obviously a paint defect and has been reported in some of the town hall message centers on 2002 Bravada. I told the dealer his response was unacceptable, but I am getting the run around here. A factory rep is supposed to look at it tomorrow, but the dealer held out little hope. Help

My main problem with this vehicle has been the paint. 2 paint jobs later on the lower half of car - paint still looks like crap. I can see the erosion beginning again on the driver's side on rear door lower where the body flares (design error I've been told). I've notified Oldsmobile who state that it's the environment I'm driving in, not the paint. Why then, does not every car in new england look like mine? I am planning on running boards - don't want to buy them - but trying to save the paint.
