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.

2005 Monte Carlo over heats, second year I bought the car. Replace a number of things. Gas gauge does not work, speed gauge does not work, rear defrost does not work. This is 2012 and I bought it in 2005. Til this day the car is still over heating. The car is a lemon. When you have a car for seven years, and have to keep financing. To make payments and full coverage insurance and to fix the car, and don't get to drive the car for almost two years. You lose respect for the company that built this model.the manufacturer ought to pay me for taking their lemon off their hands. What ever we fix the car will run, but not long and the list goes on.
