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 Captiva Owner Comments

problem #1

While driving, the dash board lights will come on from time to time. The signal light inside the car may show, but not indicated outside. Once in a while the cabin light flutter, dim and then return to full brightness. The radio may stop working and " ting, ting" sound may come on with the dash board panel lights illuminated momentarily. This car was recently serviced by the dealer and I have reported on this problem before. Since it occurs very often, I have indicated the date of the last occurrence. Thanks
