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.

The passenger side window in the front won't go down. The rear windows won't go up. At one time I could pull them up, but not anymore. I can't afford the repair which I've been told the part...x3, one for each window...would be just over $50 if I bought it myself. I use to hear the motor run in the one back window sometimes if I tried to close it, but not anymore.

If I go out in the rain, or park somewhere and it rains unexpectedly, it rains into the car. And I can't lock my car against thieves so I worry about it. I also don't feel safe because if the car breaks down or won't start.(that's another post), I can't lock myself safely inside. Thanks GM. From what I've read you're a real bunch of losers.
