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.

Oldsmobile 2003 Bravada AWD complete transmission failure at 53,000 miles. Required new transmission. No warranty coverage from GM. I see ion the internet that many owners of the same GM vehicles have had the same problem. Clearly this is a manufactures defect that requires a recall.
