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.

1999 Chevrolet Astro Van Owner Comments

Vehicle starts hard or doesn't start at all one day but starts immediately the next day. Very unreliable. Bought it for a delivery vehicle but basically can't use it because it's unreliable. Possibly related to moisture because it often doesn't start when it's raining or on a warmer winter day when the snow is melting. Starts right up when it's cold/dry though. Also have a 2000 with similar problems. Have spent a ton of money on both the 99 and the 2000 replacing fuel pumps, caps, rotors, distributors etc.
