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 a 2002 Monte Carlo.the problem with the car is that both doors passenger and driver door has damaged and bended both fenders. I have seen a lot of Monte Carlo cars like mine. With the doors bending the fenders it's hard to get in and out of my car and it also causes water to get in my doors every time it rains causing my speakers to not play right.
