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.

The car has a very strong gasoline smell when the gas tank is full. The smell is so strong in the garage that I fear it may cause a fire.

I have visited the dealership twice and going on the third time and they have failed/refused to fix the problem. This is in regards to a emission system recall. GM set up an appointment, I showed up and they gave me the run around and said they could not work on the car. Called GM and complained and set up a second appointment and I showed up again and after two hours was told to come back on another day as they could not loosen the bolts. The car is in new shape and garaged. This is a dealership. What an excuse. GM has been of no help and the dealership has failed/refused to do the recall work. I have tried and lost two days trying and going on three. Please help. I visited the dealership on Oct 17 and 31st.

Traction does not prevent wheel spin at any speed. The car will loose rear wheel traction at any speed. Engine speeds of 5,000 RPM and above cause tires to loose traction under moderate acceleration. Car is stock and still under warranty.
