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.

2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Monte Carlo LS 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission

Thanks to autobeef , and Kim B i found the problem really fast.I love this website! It saved me an $86.00 inspection fee from the dealer and probably another $400.00 in repairs.

Update from Mar 31, 2011: I figured i would update this complaint .I have had to change the cabin air filter twice now. Leaves , garbage , pine needles , etc clog the filter , therefore water drains inside passenger floor board. The location of the cabin air filter is below the windshield guard on passenger side. In my case there was a mouse living in the car when i bought it, so it shredded the filter and then the leaves on top of that did not help.I will also say if i hadn't read about the water seeping problem on autobeef , ( on a chevrolet lumina) , i'm sure i would have never figured it out.Thank You Autobeef!
