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.

Vehicle surges when car is in idle position (breaking). This vehicle was not in an accident, however during a surge the car bumper went over a parking block that had a tie rod sticking up. When I backed up the car, it pulled the drivers side bumper away from the front end. Also, an engine light goes on when the window defroster is on, stating that the ac is being shut off (ac is not on, the heater is) and shuts down the HVAC system.

When driving I keep smelling an odor coming from the venting system when the heat is on. At times the odor is stronger than other times, and even nauseating at times. I keep telling dealership that it is a chemical smell. Finally after having my car in shop twice they said that Chevy did a bulletin on a "heating box" and that it is too hot and needs to be replaced. We will see if that is what it is.
