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.

1998 Chevrolet Lumina Owner Comments

problem #1

May 162008


  • 114,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Chevrolet Lumina. While driving between 30-35 mph, the vehicle stalls and the speedometer displays inaccurate readings. When the accelerator pedal is depressed, the vehicle kicks and begins losing speed. The vehicle is either losing or not getting enough fuel. The vehicle had to be towed on more than one occasion. The dealer could not duplicate the failure. The contact believes that the cause of the failure was the catalytic converter. NHTSA campaign id number 073021000 (fuel system, other:storage:tank assembly:pressure relief devices). The failure mileage was 114,000.
