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.

problem #3

Camaro 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 3 miles


Since delivery the left rear of the vehicle rattled. The dealer attempted to fix the problem but the attempts were unsuccessful. The vehicle also experienced sloppy shifting, noisy drive train, no traction control, many squeaks and vibrations. The windshield scratched easily front he wiper blades which caused poor visibility.

Since delivery, vehicle has left rear rattle. 4 attempts to repair did not correct problem. Also, sloppy shifting & noisy drive train, no traction control, many squeaks and vibrations. Also, windshield scratches easily (from wipers?) and vision is distorted. GM promised to have area service manager contact me, but no one has. Seeking replacement or repurchase of auto due to many different problems, and complete dissatisfaction.

While driving, skip shift feature forces shifts to move from first to forth by passing second and third gears, no acceleration. On several occasions, other vehicles have had to take evasive action to avoid collison.
