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.

Leased vehicle has stopped for no reason 3 times in traffic. No indication of problems, no dashboard lights lit before vehicle stopped. The vehicle just stopped dead cold with no warning. Consumer has been in contact with dealer 3 times and taken the car in for service, the dealer could not fix the vehicle, and the vehicle has a vehicle data recorder on board. That still has not helped and problem still has not been fixed. Made a complaint to the BBB. GM customer service and they denied the consumer's complaint. The consumer has every printout from the dealer that states the problems. The car has a pattern of problems.
