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.

paint issue/rust paint issue/rust paint issue/rust paint issue/rust

CHEV has a primer & final coat problem on 1998 (New Model Year) and for at least 4 years later maybe more. Only white seems to be the problem.... Seen dozen in Colorado and Texas... Dealerships say not their problem! Look around and see all the Utility and other Vans (Express version most notably) that all have the same issue and worse comparing my photos to some where the rust has eaten through and leaking. No recalls by GM and not found too many complaints... though when I talk to some of the owners... totally hacked off! NOT caused by rocks or chipping... BAD PAINT JOB AT FACTORY!!!!
