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

Feb 222004

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,000 miles


I have a 2002 Monte Carlo ss. Without warning the ABS light came on. Notified dealer and they said was ok to drive until they could look at it. Turned out to be a sensor as they thought. The problem was fixed but at significant cost. GM has designed the sensor such that it is part of the hub, so the whole thing had to be replaced. Instead of $200 I had to pay $775. At 46000 miles I would not expect this. I have had other vehicles with ABS with over 100000 miles and never had the first problem.
