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.

problem #2

Sep 302001

Corvette 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles


On three separate occasions I have had the fuel gauge read from over a halve of a tank to immediately reading nothing. When I took it to the dealer, the service department stated to me "well it's not a perfect science you know" and proceeded to do nothing to investigate it or repair it. I have also been having problems with the lights in the instrument panel. The mph light is blinking on and off and just the other day the light info bar went completely off and I couldn't read my computer info. I have addressed several times with the dealer about the severe front end vibration when the vehicle reaches speeds of 70mph, but the dealer won't look into it because they say they can;T drive it that fast. What! if the law allows me to go that fast, why can't they? the drives seat belt constantly locks on me not allowing me to look out my side or rear window. In the convertible you really have to stretch to see out that small window in the top, the seat belt does not allow me to and I fight to get it to release. The last thing I want to do it take my seat belt off when I'm driving! please look into these problems. Thank you.
