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.

Car starts fine. After a few miles all the idiot lights go on and goes into limp mode. Stop and put in park then move to drive and can go for additional miles 50-100+ and then car stalls. Car stalls after 5 minutes also. Turn car off wait for a few minutes can now start car and go some more before stalling again. Chevy "Certified Mechanics can't find the problem. They suggest replacing electrical harness and ECM. So far no recalls for this they say. I think its a sham.
