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.

THIS SUT IS SUPPOSED TO HAVE TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM THAT IS ACTIVATED AND DEACTIVATED VIA A SWITCH ON THE DASH. THIS WEEK I TRIED TO HAVE THE PROBLEM RESOLVED UNDER MY GM "VALUE GUARD" EXTENED WARRANTY POLICY. I WAS TOLD BY THE DEALER [BOB STALL CHEROLET] THAT GM REFUSED TO COVER THIS DEFECT. I AM NOW TRYING TO RECOVER THE $1500. PLUS I PAID FOR THE WORTHLESS POLICY. DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE ON HOW TO SOLVE THIS WITHOUT FILING A LAW SUIT?
