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.

When on my way to work, my truck just died! It is in the shop now and the mechanic is trying to tell me it is the factory security system! Please!! Since when does the security system control whether your vehicle runs or not? I guess although it is 2011, females still get the shaft when it comes to certain things! After reading the complaints, it seems that Chevy should be well aware of this problem. What's the deal? At least inform the consumers what causes the problem so we won't get shafted by the auto repair shops!
