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.

2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Jul 102005

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 54,000 miles


Febuary of this year ABS traction sensor and brake system warning light illuminated. When backing iout of driveway or in normal driving at any given speed the brakes would grab and the traction active lights would illuminate. Took vehicle to a dealer, they said it was the left rear wheel hub sensor that failed, but could not duplicate problems consumer was having at that time. The dealer did not replace this, but did reset the sensor. When vehicle was driven away from dealer brakes still had the same problem. Within 24 hours the same issue was actived on the vehicle. Returneds to dealer, this time they replaced the left rear wheel hub sensor. About a month later this happened again. Did phone dealer about this. Consumer made another trip to the dealer, who noted again the left rear wheel sensor had gone bad again. Currently, car is again at the dealer for the 4th time for the same problem. The last occurrence was at a at stop sign, and when applying brake pressure discovered no brakes. Afterwards, immediately drove to dealership, where car is now. Also has had rotors resurfaced, and replaced rear brake pads as well during this process.
