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.

2013 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

There have been several situations with the Corvette LS7 engine that resulted in dropped valves and blown engines. My source is the Corvette forum where several owners have had the problem. The faulty valve guides have been traced back to the engine head supplier. When the valve drops the engine stops and the car becomes a safety risk as there is no power breaks or steering and there is danger of a fire and or accident. General Motors must be aware of this problem as they have replaced many engines. They should issue a recall to check the valve guide clearance (wobble ) and replace the faulty heads. This would be cheaper that replacing blown engines and safer for the traveling public.
