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.

2004 Oldsmobile Bravada Owner Comments

Bravada 6-cyl

Gas gauge, oil pressure, tachometer and speedometer all give false readings. This cause the inability to accurately maintain speed in accordance with speed limits. It also makes it impossible to determine fuel level which can lead to running out of gas while driving. Vehicle was looked at by dealer and determine instrument cluster is defective. Repair required cluster be sent to repair shop at a cost of $750. I did mot have this fixed since I have never heard of this kind of failure being the customers responsibility since vehicle safe operation is dependent on it. The vehicle is a 2004 Oldsmobile Bravada SUV.
