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.

Bought car brand new. Drivers side mirror consistently vibrates - had replaced twice - dealer would not replace a third time due to bug shield being installed. It still vibrates. June 2001 - door locks went nuts. They would lock and unlock themselves while driving down the road or while parked - with keys in it. March 2003 - blinker switch went crazy. It would not stop clicking - whole dash had to be taken out to replace switch - not a cheap thing! May 2003 - alternator went out and ruined battery. Almost caused a car fire. Transmission fluid leak. Not yet fixed because of unknown cause of problem.

Transmission replaced after 2 years of hassle, new transmission shifts hard but dealer states all transmissions run that way. Turn signal/windshield wiper module replaced twice, turn signal continued to click after turned off, windshield wipers turned on by itself. Driver's mirror replaced twice due to vibration and continues to vibrate, dealer refused to replace a third time due to a bugshield being installed even though mirror vibrated before bugshield was installed. Vehicle was bought at grubbs Chevrolet but has been serviced for the past two years at lowe Chevrolet in waynesville mo.
