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

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

While driving the car to work, heard a clunk-grind sound on a right turn. Drove to work anyway on the freeway - about 15 minutes. When pulling into my parking spot, turning right, the clunk-grind sound appeared again and then just made a grinding sound. After having the car towed to a Chevy dealer, was told it was a broken right-front axle. The dealer is currently repairing, but the car is less than two full years old and has only 41,500 miles. I called chevorlet customer service and they are picking up almost 50% of the $600 repair bill. Thank goodness this didn't break while I was driving 75 mph. On the freeway!
