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.

Purchased a new vehicle that had an odd smell, but soon became overpowered with its strong odor. Consumer's wife eyes watered from the smell and her throat burned. Took vehicle to dealer for who tried to remedy the problem by placing odor eaters inside of the trunk from where the smell was strongest. The odor was stronger when vehicle was outside in heat or hot weather. Consumer was concerned that this may be toxic. The problem was ongoing. Contacted GM, but they did not answer the concerns. Vehicle continued to smell of odors. Front passenger side seat was squeaking with side to side motion. Front seat adjuster assembly replaced.
