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.

Someone needs to look closer at on-star's business practices...they nearly caused a severe accident tonight. While driving my month-old Chevy thru a busy intersection in the dark, bad weather, the radio turned itself off and a male voice came from the back seat (rear speakers) telling me I needed to hit the blue onstar button and 'finish' signing up for the service. I nearly jumped out of my skin, mid-intersection. I have repeatedly told them I do not want the service, did not know they would literally solicit with automated messages while driving! this is an incredibly disturbing use of technology and a safety hazard.

Terrible odor from the air conditioning unit, I have brought this car back to the dealer on 3 occasions. They state they cleaned the air conditioning unit"? now after 2 weeks of having my car back the odor is back and worse. The dealer states that there was a problem with the drain plug, then the onboard computer, then they say they removed the entire unit and clean and disinfected it" the problem is still there. I am a very unhappy customer!!!
