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.

2010 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

The 2010 Camaro ss automatic is equipped with the fuel management system which deactivates the valves on four cylinders at low speeds. Upon accelerating the four cylinders are re-activated and a surge of approximately 200 hundred horsepower is sent to the real wheels which causes a traction loss and loss of control on icy or snow covered roadways. This is a hazard which can create a serious accident due to the rear wheels losing traction and slipping. The dealer has checked my vehicle and stated that GM considers this normal and not a problem.

When the contact referenced the owners manual for the vehicle, it stated that the failure was a normal feature of the vehicle. The vehicle was not inspected or repaired. Also, the contact stated that the vehicle would often fail to start or would stall abnormally without warning. On one occasion, the contact was unable to remove the key from the ignition and the steering wheel locked abnormally.
