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.

My key keep getting stuck in the ignition. After a couple of tries of wiggling it out, it came out. But when I'd gone home for then end of the day my key wouldn't come out at all ! I had to leave my key partially started because the key wouldn't come out. So my bad dies, alarm not working and not to mention I was 4mths pregnant and I kept driving around as I spoke with a GM rep and onstar rep hoping eventually the key will come out but it didn't.
