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.

Driving down the hiway, had just passed a semi; thank goodness it was after that that my driver's side tire blew making the car quite difficult to steer. Took it to Firestone; had to have both front tires replaced and instructed to bring it back the week after for an alignment. At that time I discovered that both new front tires were already ruined due to the cradle/frame assembly which was rusted out. This cost me $863. Yesterday - 08/12/2015 the fuel pressure regulator went out. Upon my investigation I discovered this was a recall issue. I was told it had been fixed.. altho there wasn't any concrete proof given to me that it had as the dealership I called was not the dealership that said the issue was resolved. Now I have a car that is completely inoperable just weeks after spending $863 to have one issue resolved. I find it particularly appalling that no one seems to want to help resolve any of these issues.

I was driving home from town. I moved over on the street near my home to let another car pass and I felt a large bump and the front passenger side of the car dropped down. I got out thinking I had a flat tire but that was not the case. The tire was in the wheel well at a very crooked angle and sit some what on the tires edge. I was able to straighten out the wheel and limped home. The mechanic on Monday said the cradle in the front of the car rusted out and had broken. When the cradle broke so did the right axle. He has had a hard time finding a good used cradle as GM does not make new ones anymore.

When turning in either direction, the vehicle shuddered. The dealer replaced the pressure hoses in the power steering. When the vehicle was drive over bumps, there was a noise in the right front tire area. The ash tray lid was inoperative.
