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 LS 2.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 135,000 miles

i loved my car but when i hit 100,000 it was all over. i can't believe a vehicle that cost $25,000.00 only lasts for 4 years/100,000 miles, everything is going wrong with it, the pcm, cat converter, barrings, can't get it all fixed. who can afford a new car these days, wish GM made better cars. nobody please don't buy a used Monte Carlo, oh and i forget the transmission is about to go bad. of course i had an extended warranty that lasted right up until all my problems started.
