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.

Window switches don't work for passage side on drivers door. Any time pushed it smells like they are burning. I was told that I would have to pay for the fix even though it was under warranty. It still isn't fixed we just don't use them. The back up lights never work and the dealer want to always say it a bad bulb. I replaced a bulb at the dealer in front them and they said it must of been a bad bulb. I've replaced at least 15 bulbs in 3 years. I also had to pay for airbag censors when they went bad and under warranty. Chevy doesn't keep their warranties and make up reasons why they don't have to cover the problems.
