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.

Is this something G.M. did to keep their mechanics employed? Our last 5 cars have been Park Avenue's and every one of them has had to have the intake gasket replaced between 87,000 and 110,000 miles. I love the car but if you get one plan on spending 350.00 to 700.00 to repair the intake gasket. If your lucky it will leak to the outside of the motor, not so lucky it will leak into the oil where it can cause some real problems. The 750.00 repair is if your lucky enough to have the "Plastic" plentum on the intake that has to be replaced at a parts cost of about 300.00
