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.

2006 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 102011

Monte Carlo 8-cyl

  • 42,000 miles


Vehicle is developing body sheet-metal rust due to an apparent manufacturer painting defect or incomplete paint during the assembly process. Both rear quarter panels have begun rusting in the same areas, on the "spot-welds" or "punch-welds" where the inner and outer fenders are welded together. A local Chevrolet dealership has physically inspected vehicle, and supposedly submitted repair estimate to General Motors to see if company would repair. This occurred on Tuesday, July 26, but have heard from neither dealership nor General Motors (mileage at time of estimate approx. 43,000).
