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.

2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 172007

Silhouette 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Oldsmobile Silhouette. The 6-way power seat control has an opening that allows the webbing of the seat belt to get caught in the control, which raises the front driver side seat. The failure causes the seat to quickly move forward, knocking the driver's foot from the brake pedal to the accelerator pedal. The failure has occurred on several occasions and once it caused the contact to damage his garage door. He then placed masking tape over the power seat control to prevent the failure from recurring. The contact scheduled an appointment with the dealer for an inspection. The contact believes it is a design flaw and that the dealer would be unable to assist. The current and failure mileages were 37,000.
