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.

problem #1

Jan 042008

Century Custom 3.1L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles

The lights for the odometer and gear indicator stopped working as well as the intake manifold leaking, water pump, both rear windows, front passenger side wheel bearing all went at about the same time around 72,000 miles.

It is a sad situation as I actually like the car and get 22 city, 31 highway but this is junk, I am disabled and figured that when I bought it with 23,000 miles on it the car would last for a few hundred miles as I do not drive hard but drive almost daily.

I will never buy another American made auto; when I made my last purchase in 1987 I walked onto a GM lot before turning around in disgust as I wanted a small truck that was made in Japan.

I found a Dodge Ram 50 that I should still be driving if I would have kept it, the darn thing had 156,000 miles and had only put brakes & a timing belt, oil pump belt on it.

I hope GM goes out of business and choke on their money as I will never buy a US made car if I can find one that has been imported by ship I will grab it.
