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.

Last year, My check engine light started coming on. After having it check, it coded as a "Random Misfire" Per an existing service order, work to repair was done and light went out until December of 2013. With research on GM Bulletins, Warranty was to be 7 years or 100,000 miles. My vehicle only had about 74,000 miles. The dealership advised me that the bulletin expired in 2011 and I had to pay a hefty price, $3000.00 plus to have this fixed. They got there money. My Christmas was shot to hell. Now my question was and is, if this bulletin expired in 2011 and it was good for 7 years, that would back it up to 2004, so my figuring is that GM knew about this problem before I bought the truck and of course I was not made aware of this. Does this seem familiar with the current problems GM is now having with the ignition problems? Any way, I contacted GM customer service a number of times and I was never ever called back. The service request was 71-1247682786. Bulletin 07123A. I quit trying after the third call, left messages and never called back. I had been a loyal GM customer for over 40 years and this is the way treat you.

I will no longer buy a GM product, done and finished
