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.

I have called multiple GM dealerships in order to get my ignition recall, oil leak from valve cover recall, and rear seatbelt recalls taken care of and so far none have returned my phone calls regarding the issues. I have had the appointments set for at least 6 months at 2 different dealerships and have yet to hear back on any parts arriving. They told me over the phone at both dealers that it would take a week and a half for parts to arrive and that they would return my call when parts did arrive, but I have yet to hear anything.

The contact owns a 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue. The contact received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign id number 09V116000 and had the vehicle repaired accordingly. The rear seat belts were recalled and repaired as well. After the repair, the seat belts began to malfunction again. The contact called the manufacturer to see if there was an issue with the repair work and was informed that the vehicle needed to be inspected by the dealer. The clips that were applied may be preventing the seat belts from releasing from the retractor. The dealer added a cover piece to the retractor, but it did not remedy the issue. The contact feels that this is a safety issue because the rear seat belt cannot be used. The current mileage was 144,000 and failure mileage was 143,000.

The piston rod blew a 2.5 inch hole through the engine casing at 158000 km. We had to completely replace the engine. The engine warning light never came on to warn us that a major part failure was about to take place. The back shoulder belts have never functioned properly. The brakes seem to need frequent replacement due to corosion of parts. Could you please let me know if anyone else has complained about a blown out engine? thank you

Fyi. It is frustrating to have the belts "lock" sometimes in the completely retracted position. Often requires having to belt one of the children with the middle seat lap-only belt. Dealer did not acknowledge the problem when questioned a year ago. Blamed the users (us) even though there has not been any unusual operation on our part.
