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.

2002 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 012007

Camaro Z28 Ls1 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles


Research shows that in June 1998 GM changed the sail roof adhesive which after a few years of sun/heat exposure began bubbling thru the paint (looks like rivets trying to pop thru the paint) and seeps out. When driving in sunny warm weather the adhesive dribbles towards the rear due to being pushed by the wind. The sail top must be waxed after each drive. Waxing only removes the adhesive streaks, the bubbles remain.

A local body shop stripped the paint, treated the sail top and re-painted in May 2013. Immediately after driving the first time on a warm May 2013 day, the bubbling / adhesive streaking began again. Other than that the car runs good. It is garaged always and only has 32,000 miles on it now.
