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.

Oil coiler lines leaked from the day I bought it from the dealer. Dealer definitely knew and cleaned it up before I got it. 1st set of lines from radiator to oil filter replaced a few months after purchase in 2001. Second set from filter to motor now need replacing. Evidently, this is a very common problem. Wipers have their own agenda. With the mist setting to clean windows, wipers stay on for as long as they want. With the second mist, they don't stay on as long. By the third mist, wipers act normal. Always happens. Turn signal flasher sound started without the use of the turn signal. It stays on for random lengths of time, and makes the sound in regular, and irregular patterns. Replacing multifunction switch - as several have before me. Dealer knew exactly what the problem was. Tranfer case leaks lube. 4-wheel drive messed up because of empty case. Added lube and hope no tranmission problems arrise. Cv joint replaced 4 months after purchase. Hood latch about to break. When pulling on leaver, barely is able to pop hood. Feels like wire is going to snap. Waiting for the next problem to occur - it has been nonstop. GM designed a terrible vehicle. I am very dissatisfied and I regret ever buying it.

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.

Intermittently the windshield wipers become inoperable obstructing the view of the driver. A recall has been issued on simular makes and models, however this vehicle was not included due to the VIN. The dealer has inspected the vehicle. The wiper module had a bad solder connection. It was removed and replaced.

Had tried to start vehicle the 1st time & it failed to catch. Retried the 2nd time & finally caught. Weather was not a factor in starting vehicle. Had taken vehicle to dealer & mechanic replaced the battery. Also had fuel pump checked & replaced it. The new fuel pump terminal was broken & needed to be replaced. The computer chip was also replaced. In addition, PCV hose was not insulated & the windshield wiper washer was not working.
