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.

Monte Carlo

  • 11,089 miles


2006 Monte Carlo has had problems with the seat belt and air bag failure. The air bag light illuminated. Diagnostics were run but no problems were found. When the air bags failed, this caused an issue with the onstar system. The air bag light was on while someone was sitting in the passenger seat. This meant that the air bag was not activated. The seat belt indicator light illuminated. The dealer replaced and reprogrammed the SDM. The onstar system had been replaced once. The air conditioner has been replaced once. The keyless entry system has been replaced and reprogrammed numerous times. There has also been a problem with the traction control system not functioning.

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 800 miles
: the contact stated the dash panel instrument cluster was poorly lighted and there was limited visibility while driving in the daylight. The vehicle was seen by a service dealer on a bright day, therefore the panel was visible and the dealer could not duplicate the problem. However, in cloudy conditions the gauges are not visible at all.
