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.

1998 Chevrolet Astro Van Owner Comments

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have a 1998 Chevy Astro van that qualifies for a expired warranty for GM that is related to a defect in their fuel injection system that causes them to stick open or closed. I was never notified by Chevy about this problem and was not properly diagnosed by a mechanic until this year. The bulletin/warranty number is: 99066E and it states that all repairs relating to this problem would be covered no charge to the vehicle owner as long as it's within 10 years or 200,000 miles. So, I'm 3 years out of warranty and I have 217,000 miles. It doesn't seem right that Chevy never contacted me about this and I've had to pay for numerous repairs related to the fuel system in this vehicle over the years without that could have been avoided if I had my fuel injection system fixed. These vans are known to run up to 450,000 miles. The operation of my vehicle is vital in this economy. I really would appreciate this warranty extended to me. I have contacted Chevy/GM and they just read the warranty back and deny me repair or tell me to get it fixed at the dealership. Why should I have to pay for a repair that there is a warranty that states that they are at fault and it's related to fuel deposits in California fuel?

: the contact stated the service engine soon light illuminated and the vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop. The repair shop determined the fuel filter was leaking fuel. The fuel filter and tank assembly was replaced.
