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.

2013 Chevrolet Camaro Owner Comments

  • 30,000 miles


I have brought this vehicle to the GM repair facilities on multiple occasions for an issue that I find unsafe and unsettling. As the vehicle is travelling above 50 miles per hour or greater it will make an uncommanded right or left turn sometimes accompanied with a flashing traction control light. The latest excuse I received from a dealer in Florida was that "General Motors" states this is acceptable and is troughing. The explanation would be reasonable if the tendency to turn was minor. This tendency to turn is hard and 90 degrees. I have paid to have evaluations completed on the alignment and the tires have worn unevenly / on the outer edges, but the reports indicate the alignment has been good. The road ways are typically straight and level and moisture has not been a factor. My wife and I are both drivers of the vehicle and have both experienced the issue and the technicians at the dealers have reportedly experienced the issue as well but did not locate a cause of failure. Once the dealer contacted GM the issue was considered acceptable by someone on their end.

10/26/2012 - pulling into parking space at low speed. Car suddenly accelerated. I assumed that somehow it was my fault. Impacted a second vehicle. 02/23/2015 - exact same thing. Pulling into parking space at low speed. Car suddenly accelerated. I was able to slam on the brakes and prevent a collision. I googled "Camaro unintended acceleration" and found a video clip of another person appearing to have the same problem.
