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.

Happened on four occasions almost causing major accidents that could have resulted in the death on my family. Three of which was after I took to the dealer to get it fixed, while on vacation. First event happened on June 20,2015. I was driving on the highway at 70mph. My car suddenly lost engine power and dropped to 45mph within seconds. The stabilitrac, traction control and engine lights came on. I could not get my car to go over 50 mph on interstate. When I arrived home I called Chevy corporation and made a report. I dropped my vehicle off at my local dealer on 6/22. They said it was repaired and ready for pick up on 6/24. They replaced the pedal system and said the road test was good and my vehicle was safe to drive. My family and I left for vacation in this vehicle on 6/27/15. We didn't think we would have any recurring issues. Half way through our trip at 80mph on the highway our car reduced engine power and dropped to 45mph within seconds. The only option was to pull off along he highway with our three children in the vehicle. My husband turned the car off and on repeatedly until the lights finally went off. We traveled a few miles to the next exit not able to drive past 45mph. The third and fourth times happened on the way home from vacation on 7/5/15. The third time the vehicle dropped from 80mph to 40 mph. The fourth time was 75 mph sbd my husband put the vehicle in neutral so it wasn't such a drastic change in speed. Both of these times we had to pull off the highway with our three children on he vehicle. This vehicle is unsafe to drive!!! I have been in contact with Chevrolet Corp. I will contact them again in the morning about this issue.
