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.

2005 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

On June 22, 2005 while driving at highway speed my '05 covette lost its serpentine belt causing the car to lose pwer steering, engine oil and coolent. With the loss or steering the car became hard to steer and manuver. This problem has been know by Chevrolet that a specific bolt was not placed correctly during manufacturing and causes the loss of the serpentine belt. This was a scary event to lose steering at 60mph with a passenger during the ending of rush hour traffic on hwy114 at 6pm. The repair is taking place now involving a new diamond washer and proper torquing of the bolt. Possible engine damage may have occured and the reliability of the vehicle is now in question. In some occurances the problem has happened again. I don't want it to be me and have an accident.
