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.

1998 Cavalier check engine light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer to determine what was causing the check engine light to illuminate. The diagnostic test determined that the egr valve was sticking and needed to be replaced. The egr valve failed at 142,673 miles and again at 175,055. When the consumer looked at the service invoice it stated that there was a lifetime warranty on the egr valve. The consumer requested reimbursement from the manufacturer since the part had a lifetime warranty.
