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.

Too bad, GM will get there ass sued over this. This is one of the reasons that the "BIG" automaker is losing ground on the market. Too bad loved GM now time to check out imports that are out there.

It started out with just the coolant light night turning off, to can't drive 5 minutes in even cold weather with out it overheating. I have a daily puddle of pricey coolant on my driveway. Not very ecofriendly to say the least. Added my name to a class action movement.
