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.

I have found some recalls for this car by VIN.#, but when I enter it in GM recall site, they say there is no recalls. Mitchell and all data reported a passenger air bag module, no deployment problem. Heated windshield washer module can cause a possible fire. Rear tie rod nut can come loose and cause loss of vehicle control.
