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.

chevy is a piece of sh*t! My theft system light comes on and wont start my car. It takes 15 to 20min for it to STOP blinking and to start. Then it has done this as many as 4 times in a row. I've have waiting a hour at times to start this BS, and been late on several different occasions. If I could go back I would've never got this piece of sh*t. Every time I go to try to get it fixed somebody tells me something different, how n the h*ll am I supposed to know who actually knows what they're talking about. The dealership dont know what the h*ll they are talking about. all of them tell me something different every one I go to......I'm just sick of the car. I'll never buy a chevy again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do they think money crawls on trees, its not cheap to fix this BS....If anybody has had this problem and got it fixed and it hasn't happened again please let me know
