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.

1997 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

problem #2

Camaro RS 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


When I bought the car the battery kept going dead. I had to put a new engine in the car. Along with a new alternator and battery and still the battery goes dead. This is the second new battery. If you don't start the car everyday the battery will go dead. Winter time you have to start it everyday or keep it on a charger. I was told that Chevy had a recall on the short but I couldn't find it.
