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 #4

Dec 152006

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,425 miles


Turn signals sometimes do not work. Hazard lights do not stay on. Constantly shut right off. Driving at times can be dangerous when you put on the turn signal and it doesn't work.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles
Traffic signals constantly fail to work, used to be able to push hazard light button and they would come back on, now hazard lights won't work either. Have almost had 4 accidents because blinkers failed to work, have almost been cited by the local police until I proved it was a mechanical failure. Can't afford the cost of repair, because I had to pay out of my pocket for catalytic converter replacement when it failed, though it was a manufacturer defect, because GMC and dealer wouldn't make it good, and the engine shut down completely.

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,000 miles
The turn signals work when they want to, the oil pressure gauge works when it wants to, the sun roof opens if it wants to. It has been to the dealer on this and they say they can't duplicate the failure. These systems don't work more than do work. This has been happening since the car was purchased in 2001. If you can't help I guess I will have to pay now to have it fixed when it should have been fixed under warranty.

Electronic components on dash have been cutting off and not operating. Dealer has seen vehicle several times, and said they fixed it but more problems keep arising. The vehicle was determined defctive and was returned to the dealer in a deal made with the consumer.
