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.

Rear differential very wet and leaking in garage. Called GM was ask several questions and told to carry it to crest Cadillac, hoover, al and let them check problem. Was told not to let them fix it and GM would call me to see what I was told. I did carry it to crest Cadillac and was told it is the rear pinion seal and is very common. GM called me back and ask what they said and ask several question again then told me it is not covered under any recall and would not help with repair.
