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.

Roof panel separation recall. My vehicle is out of VIN range for this recall and was not honored. Today the panel separation has gotten worse as wind sounds has entered the cabin from the roof at 65mph on the highway. The panel is separating from the frame due to bad glue.

My 2007 Chevrolet Corvette coupe has since original purchase has made popping noises. It has been taken to the dealership several times. I even took it once and told them there was a recall on some tops. They informed me that my was not included. The first couple of times I took it in the dealership did do something that made an improvement but the noises comes back. Now it is a constant and embarrassing noise from the top. Even though it is not included in your recall I question whether a top might have been put on to make the sale since I wanted a painted top instead of a glass top. This is my 4th Corvette and have nothing but bad experiences with glass tops. My question is: What can I do about these noises.

Popping noises coming from roof panel at low rate of speed as well as fast rate. Recall # 090230 found via internet. Dealership as well as GM both notified. They both stated that this VIN # was not included in the recall. Recall states 2005-2007 Corvette roof panel recall. Apparently other VIN #'s should be included in this recall to avoid possible injury or fatalities from roof panels that fly off.

I recently purchased a used 2007 Corvette with targa top. The targa top makes a snapping noise as described in the NHTSA recall information. There is a loud snapping noise made when closing doors, engaging in gear, and especially loud when going over bumps of any kind. Cheverlot states that my VIN, even though a 2007 with the targa top making the loud snapping noise, is not covered in the recall.

Snapping sounds coming from the glass roof of my 2007 model year Chevrolet Corvette, purchased in August of 2006. Especially noticeable in temperature changes and rough road surfaces. Recall already in progress for 2005-2007 model year, but my car is not included as told to me by GM representative. I can have the car diagnosed by Chevy, but at my cost. Cannot understand why my vehicle is not included in the recall, especially when it has the symptoms described in the recall information.
