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.

About two years ago, my passanger (A Friend) try to adjust the seat to be more confortable, so he broke the handle. Then 3 months ago i broke the driver seat handle, and there's when a get so freakin mad. I went to the chevrolet dealership to ask how much it cost to repleace the seat handle, but the answer was that i have to change all the reclainer and that cost about $300.00 each seat. So I start looking on the internet, and I found the exact same problem that my seat has. I buy the some seat handles on and they work very well.

Oh yeah. About a month after I bought this used gem I was unfortunate enough to be in the passenger seat. How the hell I fit in there at 6'2" is beyond me, because the cab space in this circus ride is suited mainly for Gary Coleman or Tattoo from Fantasy Island. All I did was adjust the handle to set the seat back and the quality Fisher-Price construction on the lever let go and the thing busted. If you put more force into using anything in this vehicle that requires more physics than tearing a tissue, you're screwed. This is just a small problem in addition to the rest of them, but I have to enter them in the myriad of categories listed on this site. I think I probably have one complaint for each category for this train wreck on 4 wheels. The only thing I have left to replace is the glass and the ashtray. I guess I'm happy with the ashtray.
