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 Sedan v6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

When It rains, Water comes in the passenger side, through the dash and fills the passenger floorboard. ITS A 2003 MONTE CARLO. I see this everywhere on the Web but no solution. Its probably a 10 cent part that went bad. Its a pain in the ass every time it rains to shop vac the water out.

Monte Carlo LS

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,000 miles

the last 2 years every time it rains water leaks into the passenger floor board saturating the carpet ...1-2 inches..have to vacuum it out.of course the dealership has never had this problem before or so they claim..seems like a big engineering defect to me as ive spoken with 2 other people that have the same year as mine w/the same issue.HMMMM.my uncle does body work and says its probably a clogged windshield water drain duct that will require taking either the dash or part of engine apart to get to and 2-3 days out of commission.i would think a big issue like this has an obvious small cheap prevention that engineers would think up but automakers dont really seem to care about quality..only making money upon initial sale..they wonder why more people are buying foreign

Monte Carlo SS

When it rains water leaks in from under the dash. If the car sits for a few hours there's at least 3-5in of water on the passenger side floor. Anyone have any ideas of what it is??? Some people told me it may be the windshield seal..
