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.

I bought this car used with 80,000 miles. Less than a week after owning the car the 1 and 2 switches on the blower stopped working, the next day my compressor clutch blew, I took it to a mechanic and he couldnt find out why it blew, when he saw that my switch board was shorted out from overheat ($50) and then the compressor with labor was around $623 and a week without the car, highly disappointed in GM with this car.
