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 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 262008

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,534 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. The contact stated that water accumulated in the rear tail light assembly when it rained. When the air conditioner was activated for an extended period of time or when the vehicle was washed, water and/or moisture also accumulated in the rear tail light assembly. There was a near crash involving a heavy truck due to the tail light failure. The first incident occurred in February of 2008, in which the light assembly was replaced per the factory warranty. The second failure involved both rear exterior light assemblies, which were replaced on February 25, 2008. Both rear exterior light assemblies were also replaced within the last two weeks. All of the repairs were covered under warranty. The dealer is currently refusing to honor the 12,000 mile year warranty on the tail lights, which have recently failed again. The contact received a warning from his local law enforcement officer regarding the rear tail lights not illuminating properly. The failure mileage was 30,534 and current mileage was 37,000.
