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.

The headrests on this car push my head so far forward that I have terrible pain while driving. I also cannot see where I am going due to the extreme angle of my head jutting forward. Not too safe--any reasonable person can figure this out. In addition, the car is burning excessive oil. Also, when trying to accelerate after slowing down in heavy traffic, it bogs. Again, not very safe. This car is a piece of crap--never again will I get a Chevrolet. This happens all the time!!

The drivers seat power adjuster came unscrewed and the seat dropped down. There is a recall on this issue, but this vehicle is not included in the recall. I have fixed the issue twice now since December 2014. I have pictures.

I received a recall notice in September 2014... GM recall 14271 after making numerous phone calls over the last 3 months to both the local Chevy dealer and Chevrolet customer assistance center there is still no part available to remedy this safety issue. The only response is the "parts are not available" and "we have no idea when they will be in."
