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.

Brakes grinding at 14,000 miles, 2 tires wearing. Taken to dealer, dealer turned rotars and said tires were goodyears problem. Taken to Goodyear dealer, was told it was a bad set up by car dealer and was the 3rd car brought in from that dealer. Called GM hot line and was told to take into another dealer and that we would have to pay for estimate if it wasn't warranty. The first told us it would not be warranty. Now we are driving on an almost bald tire with my children and grandchild in the car. The reason we bought a new car is so we would have a safe car and when we spent 20,000 dollars we thought it would last more than a year not only 14,000 miles. After the dealer turned the left rear rotar it still has marks on it.
