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.

The heater fan kept turning on and off and I had to have a new ignition switch put in. At times the fan would quit working while going down the road.other times the fan would not turn on. The cruise light would blink when the heater fan was turned on and the cruise would quit while driving down the road.. I saw on the news last night where there was a recall. I've not recivedany info.

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The contact stated when attempting to pass another vehicle the contact's vehicle lurched forward. She pressed the brake pedal to the floor but the vehicle would not stop. She then placed the vehicle in neutral, which slowed the speed. The vehicle eventually stopped. When she took the vehicle to an independent repair shop, the mechanic determined that the throttle was stuck. The mechanic cleaned the throttle system, and replaced the brake pads. The brakes appeared to be damaged as a result of her attempts to stop the vehicle. This was not covered by warranty. There have been no further problems.
