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.

Rotor probems: 1st@10,333 2nd@17,914 and again @26,000. Also problems with door chime-would not stop chiming with keys out and lights off. Was taken in 6 times before resolved. Also taken in for tailight seal coming loose and now must go in again bc the driver rear passenger door will not open from the inside, door latch does not work. Car is a lemon. I have wasted too much of my time by continually going back for warranty work. A new car should not have this many problems. Have filed a complaint with GM directly on 3-24-00 bc this is not getting resolved.
