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

Jul 072003

Silhouette 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 46,800 miles


Brakes, air conditioning, wheel hub & ABS, fuel pump. Wheel bearings disable AWD. Been replaced 8 times. Fuel pump went out at 52000 part alone $400. Air conditioning out when bought it. They scammed me and put a sealant in the condeser and sold it in the winter. These item should be replaced by GM because its an on giong problem with the bearing hubs and a bad design on the condenser. My father inlaw works for GM along with other family members. I will not buy another GM product again!!! P.S. who ever was the bright one to design tail light that plug in from the top and let water fill you tail light should be fired!!!dk
