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.

1) I received a recall notice from Chevrolet recall information processing center on May 13, 2004. The recall is # 04006 - electronic column lock system. This recall was started on Feb. 9, 2004 according to your site. 2) I purchase the 2004 Chevrolet Corvette coup on September 9, 2004. I question Chevrolet's commitment to safety. Issueing a recall in Feb. Of 2004 and not bothering to repair the defect well the car was in their total control for 8 months, then selling me the car knowing full well the defect had not be fix, then waiting another 9 months to notify me. I contaced the dealer on May 16, 2005, to see if the car had the recall defect repaired. It had not. So Chevrolet has waited a total of 17 months. Not exactly a consumer advocate for safety to the driving public. 3)according to the dealer, this work can only be done during the week, not a weekend. So now, I have to miss a day of work for a problem that should have been taken care of before I even purchased the car. Now I know why Chevrolet always sends out a satifsfaction questionaire 30 days after purchase, because they know most of their vehicles should last that long. I'm sure I will not get one after a year has pasted.
