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.

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Owner Comments

My 2001 olds Silhouette van. Back on 08/01/08 experienced the same fuel tank failure as described in recall # 07V349000 for the 2001 Chevrolet Venture van. After having the tank replaced I found out about the above recall for the same problem on the Chevy van I contacted Chevy customer service for repayment of the repair cost. I was informed this morning that since the NHTSA did not include my vehicle in the recall they were not responsible for the repair cost. My question is how can my van go down the same assembly line as the Chevy Venture and other vehicles listed in the recall experience the same failure and yet not be included?
