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.

I noticed that i had trouble shutting my trunk. One day it would not shut at all. the only way to shut it was to adjust some screws.

I bought a 2000 Chevy Cavalier new. Since then the trunk lock has broken three times! The first two times it was fixed under warranty. The last time I had to pay out of my own pocket because Chevy didn't have the decency to admit they sold me a car with a badly designed trunk lock. They don't stand behind their product and I'd advise anyone reading this to look elsewhere beside General Motors for your next car.
