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.

Air bag on passenger side dash has lifted up - the vinyl cover has lifted off. There was no impact or any other reason for this to happen. The air bag is still in the dash and has not imploded but I am fearful that this might happen. Chevrolet has said they will review the problem and perhaps may or may not pay 50% to having the air bag repaired which they say means installing an entire new system. I contend that this is a defect and Chevrolet should take care of the problem free of charge. Chevrolet said because of the year and mileage (62,000) that it is not under warrenty and they cannot be responsible.
