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

Skylark Custom 3.1L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


This was the last straw. I had replaced the heater core about 1 1/2 years previous after it exploded that cost about $600. Now it was broken again and spurting coolant. The intake manifold was leaking oil as well. I had asked a mechanic to examine for leaks a few times and was told he couldn't find any. A good indication of the failure of the cooling system is the that the car will heat up (it doesn't have to be more than half on the gauge) and then suddenly cool off eg the engine went from the half way point on the gauge to a quarter very quickly. Its very expensive to fix. I paid $2500 for the car, I got it with 120000 miles. The repair bill was $1500 + the car lasted to 160000. Pity, it was a fun car to drive.
