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.

Cruze 4-cyl

  • 13,300 miles


Moving with traffic, sneezed and when I opened my yes I couldn't stop in time and rear ended a stopped or slowing down vehicle. I was wearing my seat belt, slammed into the steering wheel, wondered why the air bags didn't deploy. Went to hospital. Bruised from right side of neck down my chest. Faint black yes from hitting steering wheel. Bruises on both knees. I am concerned the air bags failed. Your assistance would be appreciated. Also have pictures of bruising.

We received GM safety recall 14305 on June 25th. We were advised of an air bag malfunction and to contact our dealer asap. We called the dealer (paddock Chevrolet) immediately and were advised that they had received no instructions from GM. They would call back in two days, which they did. They advised that still had no instructions from GM. It has now been over a week and have not heard from the dealer. I cannot believe that it is taking so long to give instructions to the dealer. In March GM had realized they had a problem. In addition the recall advised us to contact the dealer asap due to the increased risk of injury.I guess this points out to us that GM does not really care about their customer, since their fiasco with the ignition key. I will never buy a GM auto again because of the lack of concern for safety issues with the cars. This basic problem can never be solved as it is ingrained in their management style.

Cruze 4-cyl Diesel

  • 438 miles
The car was coasting on a level road. Just before the driver applied the brake, the interior lights started flashing and the steering wheel locked. The brake pedal went all the way to the floor but the car did not stop. Then the front passenger airbag went off and then the drivers side airbag went off. No other cars were around. On star came on and stated that the occupants were just in a very serve accident and that emergency services were on the way. There was no damage to the vehicle at all. GMC sent out an inspector and he was surprised. A report was prepared and ultimately it was stated that the car was experiencing a roll over event. However, the data in the report does not support gmcs contention. One major error discovered on the report was that the sensor said it was a small adult sitting in the passenger seat. That adult weighed 265 pounds or more at that time. Next one of the data records says the event took place on 7/5/2013. One of the event recorders states the car was rolling in a clockwise flashing but another one shows the car was rolling head to toe. Finally, the graphical data shows no rollover in one sensor and a counterclockwise rotation in the other. GMC stated that they would fix the car for free and offered to pay medical fees and bills. The passenger suffered a broken collar bone, a ruptured ear drum and blood pressure on site of 220/140. The vehicle sensor stated that the vehicle was hit on the side (broadsided). The data recorder states that both airbags went off at the same time, but there was a three second delay between the passenger airbag, then the driver airbag. The passenger airbag indicator status was set to the off position, thus no passenger airbag should have deployed per manufacturer specs. No rear curtain airbags deployed. The report shows the airbag deployed outside the standards set for airbag deployment.
