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

Monte Carlo

  • 50,000 miles


Car would not go into reverse. I put it back into park then in reverse and it worked. I drove home feeling hesitation with the transmission. I dropped it off at the dealership. They confirmed it was the trans due to faulty parts. The warranty was for 36,000 miles my car has 50,000. I am looking for them to back there parts for replacement they want to charge $3,000 for repair. They then offered to give $1,000 towards repair but the whole reason the car broke was due to faulty parts.
