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.

1. no event, just failed. Windows, fuel sensor and A/C. 2. front window on 1995 olds Silhouette van, failed and was replaced. Both front windows have now failed. Consequences are we are unable to roll windows up in inclement weather. Window on front passenger side,2002 Silhouette van has failed, will roll down but not up., for from 1 hour to several hours.. motor will have to be replaced in all, dealer says. Consequences are we can't roll window up in inclement weather. 2. fuel sensor has failed, gas gauge does not work, stuck in construction zone when on trip and we showed full tank of gas but then alarm went off and showed empty. 10 miles from station. Very nerve wracking as we would have been stuck. Mechanic put a tester on it, although the alarm went off as he was doing this, the tank had 3/4 full..it also showed it had two times capacity of fuel in it. Mechanic was puzzled by it also.. said it was sensor and has to be replaced. The gauge shows full until it is empty then drops to empty and alarm sounds. Gauge goes to empty when it is shut off but then shows full when you start van. 3. motor was replaced on 1995 van by a dealer, then both windows failed. On 2002 van, we will have to replace window motor on drivers side. Bad part is getting snowed and rained on when window sticks and won't go up. And before we had A/C fixed we couldn't use windows for air. Have to replace fuel sensor on 2002. Ad dealer replace front ac compressor/condenser on 2002 van for front, back is still not working. Dealer says something is in rear of van that has to be fixed as it don't switch from hot to cold, stays on hot. And it is expensive.
