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.

2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Nov 072004

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. While driving 40 mph with the headlights activated on auto, the interior and exterior lights failed to remain illuminated. The failure has been occurring since 2004. The vehicle was taken to the service center six times while still under warranty. The vehicle is no longer under warranty and the service center will not take the vehicle without charging a fee. The contact is unsure of how long after taking the vehicle to the dealer did the lights begin to fail. He feels that the failure was never repaired and is a safety issue. He was involved in a crash one night due to the lights failing to illuminate. The vehicle is a safety issue because a serious crash could occur from driving the vehicle with the headlight failure, especially at night. The VIN was unknown. The failure and current mileages were 40,000. Updated 09/10/08. Updated 09/12/08.
