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.

Water is leaking down into headlights and fog lights. Head lights have been replaced twice. Lining to seal unit is being destroyed. Water damage is causing lights not to reflect. Dealer has been contacted, but no response to the problem. Consumer states there is a design defect, the light modules are not sealed and moisture gets in and can not escape through small drain holes, resulting in electric connections failing and the reflective material in the module fails, consumer also feels the high humidity in the area exaggerates the problem, Oldsmobile refuses to make an adjustment.
