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

Mar 022012

Silhouette Premeir 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 106,000 miles


Shortly after purchasing this van, i had a flat tire and had to crawl underneath it to try and get the spare tire to put on it and upon crawling underneath it, i noticed the the entire underneath of this van was rusted really bad and i couldnt even get the spare tire off because it was all rusted. Also on the front of the vehicle, the radiator support rusted so bad to the point where it eventually fell off while driving, and i had to use some coat hanger to hold up the radiator due to lack of funds to replace the whole support. Ive also noticed that the panels all over the van started rusting really bad and water leaks in on the floor causing electrical problems. This vehicle is a POS and was designed horribly.
