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.

When vehicle is in drive and you take your foot off of the brake it will start to roll backwards. This happens when you are sitting at a red light or sitting in your driveway. When this occurs you hit the gas and might hit the car in front of you. Or roll back and hit the car behind you. The salesman at the dealership were I got the car has had a number of complaints about this same problem, his name is john murphy. I have called the Chevrolet company to voice my problem. I am waiting to hear back from them, if you have any question feel free to call or email me and I will answer any other questions thankyou for looking into this matter.
