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.

The vehicle made a loud screeching noise. I can't remember if I touched anything, but the vehicle stalled while in motion. I put the car in park, and was able to restart with no problems. I then drove slowly and turned on the air; when I changed the flow of the air to flow from within the car, it made the screeching noise and stalled again. Restarted the car, turned on the air and it stalled again. I took it to the Chevrolet dealership and they said that the ac compressor had failed and was tearing up the engine belt, which would also have to be replaced. With parts and labor, I was quoted $1200.
