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.

Car ignition keeps hanging up and will not release key upon shut off. Traveling between states, a burning smell began to come through the vents, the car shut off without warning traveling 70 mph on the highway, remaining lit and appearing fully functioning. It struck me as very familiar to the ignition issue I have had for the way the car shut off and began to act. Upon stop and actually switching off, car would try to crank, but did not catch. After towing to dealership, car cranked and drove as usual. Check engine light indicated low fuel pressure, after diagnostics for the third time the dealership is still insisting nothing is wrong with this car. Key ring has a total of 3 keys and lightweight, definitely not weighing down the ignition. This is definitely computer related, electrical and affecting the mechanical ability of the car as well as the safety of the driver. I see numerous complaints about this issue online, no recalls have been found and Chevrolet is not correcting this despite numerous car fires reported and accidents probably caused.

1st problem, the left speaker started a loud screeching noise while the radio was still playing. I had to stop the car and turn off the engine to stop the noise. 2nd problem, when I hit a bump in the road, the radio shuts off. I can't get local stations. Only sirrus station. Now when I turn the steering wheel too hard the radio shuts off then comes back on. Now while driving on the high ways, the dash board lightsturns off by them selves momentarily then turns back on. Also because of these problems, I turn the radio off... and while driving the radio turns on by itself. Driver-side back -up light was replaced visibility /wiper needs replacing wiper fluid squirt dosen't work effectively.. maybe nozzle is clogged D

My Chevy Camaro has a safety recall on the key fob ignition system. The key was found faulty and would turn off while driving. Chevy's solution was to remove the switchblade key fob and give me an ordinary key. The problem is that the paddle shifter on the steering wheel still comes in contact with the key while turning, therefore turning off the ignition. While turning off the key, it also breaks the key in half. This has happened to be 3 times now while driving. 2 of the times almost resulting in collision. I am honestly scared to drive my car.

While driving, the tapshift lever was caught in the key ring attached to the key in the ignition. This caused the car to shift out of gear, as if being put into neutral, so that the car slowed very suddenly and dangerously. This happened only when making sharp right turns, as when turning at an intersection. This occurred several times throughout the day, until we realized that the tapshift lever was only able to get caught on the keyring when the steering wheel was fully lowered. Adjusting the steering wheel height resolved the issue.

Recall notice 14V346 received for ignition key replacement from GM in August 2014 and dealer notice of past due service recall for this same safety issue also received November 2014. When I called today to get my 2014 Camaro safety repaired the service provider at the dealer where I purchased the vehicle said the parts are on back order and would not make an appointment for the safety repair"! she advised me to call back in 10 days. GM must really be concerned about my safety to not have safety recall parts available for repairs. Also, I previously purchased an additional ignition key with transmitter from the dealer for this vehicle. Why will GM not also replace this transmitter/ignition key under this safety recall"

I was turning onto the highway that the speed limit is 65 mph from a side road. I waited for oncoming traffic to pass and then pulled out. As I pulled out, turning right, my car had a sudden loss of power. I tried to restart and it would not restart. I had difficulty pulling over to the side of the road due to the steering wheel being stiff and hard to handle. After I got to the side of the road, I was able to restart my car. I did not bump the ignition switch when this happened either.
