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.

I currently own a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze ls that I have owned for a year with 59,000 miles. In this vehicle I have been experiencing power loss while accelerating on interstate, transmission disengages and reengages and jerks very hard while trying to accelerate. It will not accelerate more than 45 mph on interstate. It will then operate normally after about 5-10 miles after transmission disengages and reengages. Also has no power or acceleration while A/C is on.

I heard that there is another recall on my vehicle transmission cable can disconnect from the shift lever and the vehicle can roll away. My car pulls every time I slow down or start to put speed on car that's where is starts pulling and won't go. The other recall is the engine block heater power cord insulation. I have had two recalls done on this car already very disappointed. Don't know if my car has recalls on the first two recalls I have mentioned. I thought cars were not to be sold to customers if car had recalls. I get nervous and feel very unsafe in this car!! I have not gotten recalls letters yet! please let me know if these recalls affects my car.

Safety issue, so scary I am afraid of driving it now: The gas pedal has a delay in it and scared me to death several times, trying to come out of a stop light on a busy intersection as the car had a 2-3 second delay in responding to the gas pedal, and then whooshed out on top of incoming traffic!!! on the highway it happened several times that changing lanes becomes an issue as this delay in responding and sudden acceleration almost got me into an accident last week. I have bought all the warranties, extended warranties, and taken excellent care of the car. I have had it only since December 10, 2013. When I leased it, I was told it had cruise control. It hadn't so they had to install it for free. The car does not come with cruise control "????!!!! when I took it to the dealership for maintenance and review of the issue, the mechanic found the same behavior and deemed it as "normal" [??"!!!] I traced my Toyota corolla 2010, and it had cruise control! I spoke with the dealership and they tried to sell me another car for more money down and higher monthly payments, when I refused and threatened with writing to GM and the attorney general, they said they would do anything in their hands and speak with the regional rep from GM. I am waiting for their response. Sincerely, now that I know this, I want my money back then I started investigating and found a lot of complaints of the same nature. The Cruze should be all recalled and moneys refunded. I am afraid of driving that car and I want a refund. I would rather lease from another company. If I only knew the total lack of respect for human life that the GM executives had I would have never leased a Chevy. I did not know until a week ago that GM was recalling thousands or poorly made cars!
