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.

I was driving 55 mph and my speedometer said I was doing 10mph. Then my tac stopped working. Then my speedometer stopped working totally. My driver side seat will not heat at all. My wheels are peeling. The chrome is peeling right off the wheels. My check engine light stays on all the time. I have had it checked for the code so they replaced the gas cap and did a reset within 75 miles the light came back on. I am giving up on Chevrolet. Every vehicle we own is a Chevy, what's up with all these problems and no solutions"??" with all the complaints on the electrical system you would think there would be a recall and a solution. When the heat on my seat stopped working it smelled like something was burning inside the car so I quickly shut it off and pulled the car over to check under my seat to may sure there was no fire. Thank goodness there wasn't a fire. I paid the extra money for the intimidator, what a waste.
