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.

1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Owner Comments

problem #1

(reported on)

Cutlass Supreme 3.1L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


It starts off as a annoying rattling that makes u think the car is falling apart. After over a month of trying to figure it out, i had it put on a lift. It turns out, that the muffler starts to rub the heat shields that are up against the frame. I just spent about 30 minutes bending it where it wouldn't rub. For some reason, this same problem happens again about every 6000 miles. I still don't have any permanent solution and will have to fix it for the 4th time.
