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.

2003 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #2

When driving in a horrible rainstorm, the driver's side windshield wiper stopped moving and then on the next rotation, swung itself around and got lodged by the side view mirror. An accident was avoided, but it occurred 3 more times randomly that same day, and then today. It was a miracle through the heavy rain that we didn't wreck. Luckily the passenger side wiper kept working and with some luck, we exited to safety.

2003 Chevy express. Turned on the rear defroster. The rear passenger side window caught fire and began burning. Pulled the vehicle to the side of the road and another car pulled over with me. The window continued to burn, and then exploded in my face. The fire went out and the window had shattered into fragments.
