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.

NHTSA — Seats Problems

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2009 is starting to have the same problems as previous model years, including the headlights blowing out due to bad connectors.

The wiring harness connections aren't a big deal to replace, as long as your dealer or mechanic doesn't charge you an arm & a leg to "diagnose" the problem.

problem #1

Oct 302012

G6 6-cyl

  • 32,500 miles
Yesterday, in the above-mentioned vehicle, I was making a left turn at about 25 miles per hour when the driver's seat and my body shifted abruptly and radically. I almost lost complete control of my car, but, fortunately, I avoided having an accident by braking to a quick stop. I immediately took the car to the car dealership where I had purchased it, sherwood delray beach, and had the service department examine the car for the problem. They diagnosed the problem and advised me that the seat base (anchor) was broken or otherwise defective and that had been the cause of the above described incident. I purchased the vehicle in April 2009 and the odometer is now approximately 32,500 miles. The vehicle has been used strictly for general light-duty personal use since it was purchased, has been meticulously maintained, and has not been in any accidents of any kind whatsoever. I know of no possible reason why this driver?S seat base/anchor has broken or otherwise failed other than it is defective. Therefore, it is my belief that this is a bone fide safety defect in this model automobile which could cause a crash or could cause injury or death. Accordingly, I am reporting this issue to you for you to investigate. Updated IVOQ 11/15/12
