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.

The front light and turn signal assembly of this van and sister vehicles Pontiac montanas and Chevrolet Venture fill with moisture and keep the full light from shining on the roadway and being fully visible to other vehicles - this has occured in my van twice and I have noticed at least 10 other vans of these makes with the same problem

  • miles
Rear tail lights malfunction intermittently. Usually after heavy rain. Bulbs become covered with corrosion, and rust. Repair effected by olds dealer only temporarily corrects problem.dash indicator shows operational status, lites do not blink. Hi-way travel becomes safety issue of unsafe lane change, not driver error.
