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.

If GM does not help the dozens of us that had to replace our engines out of pocket then they deserve to fall like Goliath with David in the biblical days of yore!!!!!!!

Catera 3.0

After filing a complaint with the NHTSA I am trying to get GM to do the right thing and help me with the cost of replacing our 3.0 engine. Whe the Tensioner pulley froze up, it caused the engine to completely fall apart. Before the failure, there was nothin wrong with our car.
