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 vehicle has had to be repaired 3 times for the same problem. That means 3 times this repair was paid for out of pocket.

I come online today because the problem is continuing despite having the intake manifold replaced 3 times to discover there was a recall from 2009 for this exact issue for this vehicle but the vin was not included. So despite the fact that the vehicle has encountered the exact issue for the exact same type of vehicle that a recall was issued for and affected roughly 1.5 million people (avg recalls for this vehicle impacts less than 1,000), the costs will not be reimbursed by GM nor will the vehicle be added to the list of recalls.

That has got to be the biggest crock of crap there is and definitely is not a way to treat customers loyal to the brand who spend thousands and thousands on your vehicle. Guess which brand I will never buy from again?

Why would you put antifreeze in a vehicle that corrodes the gaskets? Come on GM...
