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.

On July 20 I filed a report with the Iowa attorney general. I next received a letter dated July 27 from the Iowa attorney general that all my information had been sent to the NHTSA. Today I checked with the NHTSA to get an update on what is happening. They said that they do not have any record on my problem. I contacted the Iowa attorney general office and they assured me that everything was forwarded on July 27 to the NHTSA. I am wanting to know what the latest status is and current information.

In early December 2014, the low-beam headlights stopped working permanently. Replacing the hdm module does no rectify the situation and the fuses and lamps are in good working condition. I have been driving 7 months with high-beams only, which endangers other drivers and puts me at risk of head-on collision. Other people have indicated their cars have burned because of this situation. I first noticed GM's public acknowledgment of the defect in December, but nearly 7 months later, they have neither notified me nor announced a way to fix the problem. My dealership has no remedy to offer. In one week my state inspection expires. After that I will not be able to drive the car or sell it.
