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.

I loved my monte carlo ss when I bought it. However I shortly noticed that the blinker worked when it wanted to. In rain, that thing had no chance. I would use the high beams on my car and the headlights would shut out all together in the middle of the f*cking night driving home from work. I take it to a local repair man by my house and he said it was a hazard switch or button I cant remember. The charge was roughly $243 and I was pissed. Problem with blinker was fixed but the headlights were still f*cked.

(reported on)

Monte Carlo LS 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 38,000 miles

While driving home one night from a party, I went to mke a turn and my Turn signal wldnt work... So I had to pull off the side of the road and had to keep turning on and off the car until the damn thing reset... Never had a problem of any sort with our 2002 Monte Carlo until this.. So we took it to the nearest Chevy dealership and they wanted 104.00 to put in a hazzard switch.. So I said hell no and just bought the part and was going to put it in myself... So when I wnt to put the part in, I couldn't find out where the hell it was.. They sd it was under the dash.. I'll be damned if I could find it.. If any of my brothers out there could relay a hind of where I could find the damn thing wld be very much appreciated... Anyway from reading all the complaints about the problem, I believe those a-holes should be willing to replace any of the defected cars that have the same problem... Its a real pain in the ass when your driving down the road and go to put on the turn signal and almost get rear ended by someone because your turnsignals don't work....
