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

  • 120,000 miles


January 11, 2015 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo - VIN: [xxx], mileage: Approx 120,000 since October 2014, the car shuts off while driving. I loose the power steering and it's very scary if you are on the freeway. It's hard to bring to a stop and sometimes when I shift to park it makes a horrible grinding noise. It always restarts after I sit awhile and drives like nothing has happened.. it has happened numerous times and now it's happening more often. It could cause a bad accident. It's to the point I am very scared to drive it, because I never know when it's going to happen. Last wee it happened three times. I took it in for the recall where they modify the key. It did not help. My excellent mechanic said he has never had a situation like this where he can't figure out what's wrong. (incident information will not let me enter dates). Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

When the car is being put into reverse, the gear shifter sticks and is very hard to shift. I have to put force on it to shift gears.
