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.

engine caught fire engine caught fire

Motor blew up and caught on fire with any warning. Car is a total loss. If anyone out there can help me figure out what to do because this was definitely a mechanical defect with the engine fuel combustion and system. This is causing a very bad backfire in the motor.

I bought a 2000 impala through a private sale. relatived owed it first. there had been a recall and relative had never been notified. car engine caught fire totalling the car. thankfully, no one was in the car but i had been driving it that night. gm said they don't wanna do anything about it because the warranty had been up in 2006. problem is that the recall wasn't until 2009. we are now seeking legal help with this matter. i have since had to purchase another vehicle at a time when i wasn't financially prepared.
