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 #2

Sep 292003

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 39,900 miles


Car pulsates when braking. I took car into repair shop and was told before inspection that they had been receiving a lot of service work from the brake systems on the newer Monte carlos with the 6th generation body style. Upon inspection, it was determined as discussed prior to inspection that the front rotors were warped and the rear rotors are rust pitted. They also reported that the rear caliper was leaking.
