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.

Ok so we bought the car new in 2004, last year the heater started acting crazy would only work if you slammed the door. Now you have to tap under the dash on the passenger side to get it to come on. Now my rear defrost will not work at all, the light comes on & says it's on but it sure doesn't work. Ugh I hate Chevy.
