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.

2004 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 122008


  • 55,000 miles


#1, I love the Chevy 2004 Corvette it is a beauty, inside the brain or computer, its a danger. On Aug 12th, I had an accident that did not have any failure of my driving abilities as per the following codes that GM has had problems with, and have made it impossible for a GM mechanic to fix, I did not lose anything except money and respect from GM. #2 I went to an independent Corvette race car and mechanical Corvette specialist that confirmed that the codes are meant to come and go, making it impossible as per a GM certified mechanic, and service advisor, I've taken my 2004 Corvette to twice and have been charged over 3K usd. Vara Chevrolet made many errors, not checking a code could end in a fatality, as per the above I talked to about all the codes I have received on my car, and the tragedy is that GM knows this. I recently was on a trip to midland, Texas from corpus christi, nervously I made it with a inspection done correctly, not in the manner described to the Texas dot, I put 4 new tires in which I had to drive this vehicle from vara to approx. 20 miles of freeway to get new rear tires as they were bald, for some reason, my car is listed by quick check, a vehicle information service, that has no phone numbers that my vehicle was reported in an accident on Aug 12th and a theft, which has a case number, the police said there was no such case, I have the copy that was mailed to me by odessa all american Chevy, I only want my money back, no Corvette needed. I was told I would be charged with harassment, by odessa police dept, and I have avoided any phone contact. Im not sure what harassment is in the legal system, I know now, I am powerless. Please read the following codes diagnosed after my car failed on sat, and 8 times on a trip last week, I have been out of pocket so much money, and GM has even admitted that this is a problem, code is dtc C1287 or C1288 circuit description my email is hacked please contact.
