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.

Monte Carlo Limited 3.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200,000 miles

I have owned nothing but Chevy's my whole life and I stand by them but this Monte Carlo has been the best car in the world until now. It has miles on it yes, but I baby her a lot. Oil is changed every 1500 miles. Now my car don't turn on unless I hit the search button on my radio. I've done that engine light comes on.

The guy that fixes it put it on computer and it say all fuses were blown and to changed them all. I keep changing them and it says computer is failing now.

This is my only car and I love it a lot and can't afford to buy new one and can't afford to put too much into it, as I don't have it. My last Monte had 300,000 and only reason I don't have it is because someone hit me in the front and messed the frame up and they totaled it.
