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.

At times of start up of ignition, the vehicle seems to have a problem catching. It used to only happen maybe every 15th start up but has increasingly happened more frequently. It is still intermittent but seems to be about every 3rd or 4th startup. Incident date is estimated.

Bought the car used with 20,000 and it was having problems a week later. Passenger window would not roll up, grinding and clicking at slow turns. They replaced rotors, clutch and suspension and the problem was solved. Then came the air condition not blowing cold air and the ignition sticking on start up. The final straw was the transmission slipping and dropping into lower gears, the car will be in the shop in the morning. Last Chevy I will ever buy back to Nissan.

Brake noise, thumping and grinding. Steering wheel is very tight and loosens at any time. Rotors are faulty. When starting periodically ignition switch sticks in the cranking position once manually started unless you jiggle key, causing possible fire hazard.

Contact states: Bought a brand new vehicle in August 2004. The anti-freeze was changed. The anti-freeze was brown and the smell was severe and nauseous.

There was a leak in the dome light and sunroof, the suspension and engine would tick, the horn did not work, there were front end problem, the shifter would stick, there ignition problem, noise when turning the vehicle, gas mileage problem and there was a toxic smell from the anti-freeze, the vehicle over heated, the brakes made noises, the consumer had driven through a car wash, the dome light had filled with water, the lower dash was dripping water and the vehicle would not accelerate vehicle would not accelerate and the engine light had illuminated, the vehicle pulled to the right when driving and when braking, there was poor gas mileage during city driving, there was a loud noises when making turns on the front struts, the front brake rotors were out of round, the shifter would stick, the ignition cylinder was binding, there was popping when the vehicle was started from cold, and the brake pedal would go to the floor.
