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.

This car has burned several quarts of oil since I've owned it. It burns approximately 1 to 1 1/2 quarts every one thousand miles. The dealership said the 2001 Corvettes all have this problem because of bad piston rings. They siad some cars consume as much as 3 quarts of oil per 1000 miles. The amount of oil burned is relative to how hard the car is driven. There are know replacement parts available at this time. I think the whole engine shopuld be replaced along with the oil soaked catalitic converter and mufflers.
