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.

Engine burns a quart of oil every 1500 miles. Dealer says this is within tolerances. Burned no oil for the first 15000 miles, then a quart after 3000, then a quart after 2000, now a quart every 1500H.

I have had an excessive number of problems with this vehicle. The latest problem is the radiator hose blew off the the water pump causing the engine to overheat and seize. I was already in the process of documenting an oil consumption problem. The extended factory warranty company (gmpp) has changed their mind 4 times about why it's not covered under warranty. I paid $23,000 for this car and now I have to rebuild the motor too! if anyone else has experienced similar problems with gmpp, I would like you to contact me by E-mail at evalyn.nunnery@metagroup.com my suggestion is to never buy an extended warranty because it won't do you any good if you ever have a major claim.
