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 saw that my reverse tail lights were not lighting up when I put the car in reverse. I took it to the dealer where I bought the car michael automotive in fresno ca and they told me I would have to pay them $110 to have it diagnosed even though my car has less then 30,000 miles on it and bought it brand new less then 2 years ago. Due to the fact that it was in a minor fender bender. I told them it was not even rear-ended and it could not be the cause of the problem and they insisted it might be and to pay them. I took it to an independent electrical shop and they concluded that it was a switch board under the dash and in no way could have been hurt due to a minor wreck. I told the dealer this and he still refuse to fix it under my warranty. I had the repair done at an independent shop, and now chev. Will not reimburse me for the work, because they told me not having those lights "is not a safety concern" I think very much otherwise and every light on a car that tells other drivers my intentions is very important!
