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 guess I'm the lucky one my car seems to have almost every complaint listed. The side air bag continuously tries to escape from it's seat. Several months ago my blinkers started to work only as they felt like it, having read consumer complaints, I tried turning on the hazard lights when they wouldn't function, this would remedy the blinker problem for a short time. However, now my blinkers don't work at all and my hazards don't either. About the same time my car began shutting off at various speeds with no warning. Then I went about 1 1/2 months with no stalling problems. This week my car has shut off daily making it very difficult to steer, stop and feel safe, especially with no hazards. The car will go to the Chevy dealer today, we'll see what they say. I think that it's important to note that when the car shuts down you often don't have enough coasting time to get safely to the side of the road, especially on a 3 or more lane highway.

Driver side airbag assembly installed incorrectly. Have a fear the bag will deploy upon entering car with my small children standing right in front of the opening to get in the back seat. Also, have a great fear that the airbag maynot deploy when necessary. I bought a new car and General Motors has told me they will not investigate this problem any further. The dealer has done a repair once but the frame around the airbag is still detaching itself and exposing the inside potion of the driver seat. I understand from the dealer that they have received a bullentin about this problem and are stilling selling 2002 models with the same problem and GM will not fix the problem. I feel this is a real safety issue due to the fact it involves an airbag that may or maynot deploy at any time.

Flap that conceals side airbag on driver's side is continually coming off. This concerns consumer, and is receiving no satisfaction from dealership in resolving this issue. Consumer states that the dealership tucks the leather material on the seat under the airbag, however after about an hour it is exposed again.
