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.

The heat in my 2006 Chevy Monte Carlo only gets hot when the vehicle is in motion. It blows cold at idle despite having it turned to settings for heat.

Monte Carlo

  • 30,000 miles
I purchased a 2006 Monte Carlo last year which had 25,000 miles on it right when it hit 30,000 miles the heat stopped working at idle. It only works when accelerating. In the winter every stop light you go to or any time you are coasting the windshield and other glass will fog and freeze up I have had many near accidents because of this including veering into oncoming traffic. I have two young children and I don't need them getting hurt or worse because Chevy cant stand behind there cars. Almost everyone I have talked to with this car and online have the same problem something needs to be done.
