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

I own a 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. I starting having steering problems. The steering felt loose and like metal grinding together. The bumping could be felt over in the passenger seat as well so it raised some concerns. After doing some online research I found it was the intermediate steering shaft. I am sure the company heard this complaint before. I found Chevrolet's fix to first be a lube kit that would fix the problem for maybe 20,000 miles in which I purchased and had the dealer apply. Was later told the problem was missing and defective sub frame welds. They also fixed the weld problem with super glue? im not exactly sure what the mechanic did while fixing mine, but I had to pay for it out of pocket with no clue how safe and how long this fix will work. Paper just said intermediate replaced. And I purchaced the lube. It was a dealer's defect, and they were very aware Ask any of their mechanics. Yet no recall.
