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.

GM recall 14299/NHTSA recall 14V355000 the GM fix for this faulty ignition switch is to install a smaller (13mm) key ring and small inserts on the ignition keys to prevent installing any other things on the key ring. This is not a fix for a faulty ignition switch, but a means to circumvent the problem! I find it extremely difficult to believe that your organization would rubber stamp this shoddy circumvention of the real problem! how many vehicle accidents are you and GM willing to allow before fixing the problem properly? rest assured, my attorney has a copy of this complaint and will take the appropriate action should my vehicle malfunction!
