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

Apr 012013

ATS 6-cyl

  • 3,000 miles
The service engine soon, stabilitrak, and traction control lights continuously illuminate my dashboard. It has happened approximately 6 times. Each time the dealer has found basically nothing wrong, just replaced a spark plug each time, changed the oil, and cleared the codes. The car has stalled on multiple occasions. I was almost rear ended by someone because a light turned green and my car was stalled. Prior to it stalling it violently shakes, which is just a little bit more rough than the constant shaking it always does. Also recently it has been having trouble starting. Everything seems to be related and is getting worse. The dealer extended my warranty to almost 90,000 miles but I feel unsafe in this car because of all the problems that it has and all the new problems that keep coming up.
