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.

I have dumped money into this car for the same problem and has only go to one auto shop to repair and im starting to believe theyre ripping me a new one. In november my car was overheating badly and took it there and had to pay $300 plus for tensioner elbows, in january my car started leaking dex-cool and i came out of $1100 for warped upper intake manifold, lower intake gaskets, water pump and thermostat. 1 week ago it started leaking again and i saw that the radiator cap lining was worn so i bought a new one for $12. It stopped for all of 3 days then started spewing dex-cool and each time its from between battery and radiator area. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

wife calls me at 6 in the morning ,my day off screaming about the car overheating long story short water pump is out with only 70k on the car. it would only over heat when you have driven 20 mi or more, i knew i should have bought something like my 96 maxima, seems like cars made in the 90's hold up better. im sure chevrolet sub contracted out everything to china .today the name of the game is go cheap on parts so execs get more bonuses1
