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.

2003 Oldsmobile Bravada Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 192007

Bravada 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,971 miles


- the contact stated that she could smell something burning while driving the 2003 Oldsmobile bravado. Once she parked the vehicle she saw billowing smoke coming from the front passenger seat. The contact immediately took the vehicle to a garage, and the mechanic poured water on the seat and unplugged the wire under the seat. The contact took the vehicle to a GM dealer, and they diagnosed the problem as a faulty coil. The coil was replaced, but they refused to replace the seat cushion which was scorched. The contact stated the driver and passenger seat warmers got extremely hot. The contact has the repair order.
