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.

,mentioned about brakes before, dealer could not find anything. Took in for overheating, dealer replaced some parts, said it was ready, following week overheated again, dealer towed vehicle in, took apart, said it was ready to be picked up, but it was still in pieces, and they would not fix. Further contacting Chevrolet with this problem which has been on going.

Brakes skip. Driving and engine overheats, will not go over 40 mph, keeps dying, steering/braking problems, second time in a two week period, dealer will not make good on it, still under warranty, now it is "like a rock" or at least runs like one.
