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.

All dash gauges have failed (one at a time) including speedometer (which was the last gauge to fail on 7-21-08). Trunk release (electronic) failed. Have been told the only way to get dash cluster repaired is through a dealer. Dealer refuses to sell necessary part to a certified mechanic.

The rear trunk strut support has broken four times on my 2004 Chevy Monte Carlo. I am concerned that this failure could lead to the trunk lid smashing down on someone's hand causing serious injury
