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

Jan 022013

Monte Carlo 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 117,000 miles


I had a flat tire on my car, which to me is no big deal changed the tire out had it balanced, etc, but for some reason no matter when I check the tire pressure whether it be a little low or a little too high the low tire pressure light is on and it stays on. It has been this way since I had the tire replaced.

Monte Carlo SS V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

The 2002 Monte Carlo SS is one of the finest vehicles I have ever owned, however the tire pressure light comes on. I just have to reset it on the dash.Otherwise, It is a dreamboat to drive & ride in, & makes cruising a real pleasure. The longer I own it, & as the engine "loosens up" it gets better gas mileage all the time. 1st year ownership (in 2003) was getting 26.4 mpg. Currently getting 29.7 mpg with a K&N air filter modification added. Excellent sound system, extremely comfortable, reliable, & low-cost to maintain, overall.

Chevrolet needs to re-continue this time-proven classic of a model.
