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

  • Manual transmission
  • 56,030 miles

The rear bezel cover fell off of the vehicle. After extensive reasearch I discovered that the entire bezel must be replaced at a cost of over 700.00. I also found, that do to the fact literally thousands of other people had this same problem, that no used part was available anywhere in the u.s at this time. Don't let G.M (government motors) tell you otherwise.
