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 still have the problem the tail light/turn signal burns out on the right side i replace that bulb 2 days later the left side goes out this has been going on for 2 months now i took it to the dealer i thought for the recall they inspected it said it was working fine i drove home and the bulb burned again i took it back for a diagnosis with the bulb still burned out and they called to say every thing works fine and there was no burned bulbs i know i was not dreaming my husband followed me to the dealership so i would not get a ticket or have a wreck and he verified the bulb was not working when i left the car. i beleive if they would do the recall work and change the socket on both sides my problem would be fixed hell i don't know but i do know i want be going back to jerry's chevrolet in weatherford, texas i should have put a mark on the burned out bulb just to see if that is all they did was change the bulb
