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

All my anti-freeze leaked out and the low coolant light never came on but I did not have any heat. I did notice anti-freeze on the ground and took my car to a repair shop. They said I needed a water pump and the intake manifold gaskets replaced. I have also experienced a popping noise on the left front wheel when turning wheel to the right. No fatalities or injuries as yet.

The Lumina steering is very loose at the center. It wonders when driving sraight. Dealer won't fix the problem. I have told them about it four times sense I bought the car.
