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 contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. While starting the vehicle, the key remained stuck in the ignition switch. Once the key was removed, the igniton did not cut off. In addition, the front of the vehicle was leaking oil. The failure recurred numerous times. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the ignition switch needed to be replaced and the oil leakage was undetermined. The vehicle was not repaired. The VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V355000 (electrical system). The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 160,000.

When I attempt to turn off my vehicle, the key will not rotate to the off position..therefore, the key is stuck in the ignition and the car is still on, draining the battery. I took the car to a dealership in 2013 and told nothing was wrong with it but they charged me $165 to put in a new ignition. The problem was intermittent until December 2014 and now the key is permanently stuck in the ignition and if I want to drive my car, I have to charge the battery every time I drive it. GM just recalled the cobalt and HHR for the same issue. Why not expand the recall to include all GM products with this issue.

When we put the vehicle in park to exit it, the key gets stuck. As a result we have to hit the gear shift a couple of times to remove key. Doesn't happen each time but does happen often.

Car will not shift out of park intermittently. Dealer found wires to be broken and wires that were frayed at the shift solenoid. They removed console to splice and fix the wires. Dealer deemed wear and tear" at 32,000 miles" (console would have covered these wires totally so not sure where the wear and tear would be from). From putting the car in park" drive? reverse" I doubt it was wear and tear.
