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.

2002 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #2

The plastic piece attaching the headlight vertical adjusting mechanism to the heaqdlight frame broke and fell off, causing large shifts in the headlight aim due to road irrregularities. Chevrolet does not make available detail parts of this rather complicated mechanism, making it necessary to buy a complete retractable headlight assembly for $1,000+. this discourages proper repair of this safety related issue.

The blinkers stop working sometimes while driving. The ABS lights comes on stability control. Headlights turn off and on while automatic twilight is on. The electrical system seems to have problems. The brakes, blinkers and gauges malfunction. I've looked on the internet and it seems a lot of Corvette owners from model year 1997-2004 are experiencing the same prolems. The alarm system also fails. I find this to be dangerous problem while driving when the electrical system fails to operate.
