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.

1999 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

Here's why Toyota is killing GM. On my 1999 Chevy Express van, I've had to replace: factory anti-theft ignition $400.00, starter $160.00, computer $200.00 (GM paid for some of this), transmission $180.00 (thank god for the extended warranty, otherwise &2200.00), both power window switches, and now I find out the intake manifold gasket needs to be replaced for 600.00. Currently it's sitting at the mechanics shop because now that the weather warmed up a little, you can't accelerate-it just bogs down. 3 different mechanics including a dealership can't figure out what's wrong with it. So here I sit borrowing vehicles to get to work. THANK YOU GM FOR PRODUCING THIS PIECE OF CRAP! Unfortunately, I need a van for my line of work. I pray every day that Toyota starts manufacturing a full size van.
