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.

2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 152011

Monte Carlo

  • 90,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. While the vehicle was parked the contact turned the steering wheel and heard a clicking sound in the steering. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnostic testing who stated the steering knuckles detached from the vehicle. The vehicle was repaired. NHTSA recall campaign id number: 09E005000 (steering) may be related to the failure. The contact also noticed fuel leaking from the fuel regulator that could be associated with NHTSA recall campaign number: 07E021000 (fuel system, other:storage:tank assembly:pressure relief devices); however, the recall was for an after market pressure regulator. The contact confirmed that the vehicle had original parts. The manufacturer was made aware of both failures and stated the VIN was not included in either recall. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 90,000.
