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.

While parked on the street, locked and not in use for 7 days, a fire apparently started in the windshield wiper motor. It was significantly damaged and spread to the right front wheel well and left front bumper cowling, before it was put out with a fire extinguisher. The GM investigator has indicated that it is their determination that the problem started external to the vehicle.
