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

Feb 062006

Corvette 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 3,937 miles


: the contact stated while making a left hand turn out of a parking lot at 10 mph, the contact lost control of the vehicle. Although, the steering wheel was manually adjusted to a straight position, it continued to move to the right. The vehicle then made a 270 degree turn to the left and hit another vehicle. There was no damage or police report taken. The vehicle was towed to the dealership and it was determined the steering linkage failed at the knuckle. A representative from the manufacturer read the black box and determined the failure was caused by the impact with the other vehicle. There is a NHTSA recall, # 04V273000, regarding the steering linkages. The vehicle has the same problems as indicated in the recall; however, it is not included in the recall due to the VIN.
