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.

Monte Carlo SS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 96,000 miles

Car wouldn't go over 30 mph uphill and bucked when accelerating on the flat. Web surfed discovered a "technical service bulletin. Catalytic converter covered until 100 K but no oxygen sensor replacement or rental coverage and dealer didn't stock took 3 days for part to come in and another to replace it!
