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.

2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 152002


  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles


Seatbelt-2nd row passenger side belt keeps pulling tighter and tighter and locking. Children would refuse to wear it because of the discomfort. Replaced and seems fine now. Computer control- still ongoing, battery light keeps coming on and off, alternater has been replaced, still happening. Service traction control, traction control off indicator light, ABS indicator light, air bag indicator light, all come on at the same time. Van hesitates and the headlights go dim then bright. Dealer hasn't been able to pinpoint trouble but after they work on it, it goes away for about 3 weeks and starts again.
