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 engine had an exhaust valve failure causing the motor to lock up and requiring over $5000 in repairs. When this happened the car was forced to be stopped on the highway without power brakes or steering.

problem #1

Corvette 8-cyl

  • 30,500 miles
While driving on I-275 I first experienced a muffled noise in the car that sounded like wind. The car was not holding the road as it usually does and the rear swayed a bit. Next, there was a sound like a thump. My dashboard lit up like a christmas tree with a warning that traction control was not working and that I should seek immediate repair. Next, the vehicle lost a lot of its power and decelerated rather suddenly form 70 to approx 45 mph. Car had no energy or pep and light said engine power loss. Fortunately nobody was behind me when the deceleration occurred. I exited the expressway and was just few miles from hotel and parked it. Had it towed the next day to a dealer in tampa. Do not yet know diagnosis on the car. Will probably hear tomorrow. But it was a real shock to have this happen so suddenly and the deceleration was sudden and if car had been behind me it could have been a problem.
