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.

A year, a year later and nothing.. hope no one in my family is hurt or worse before you get off your butts and deal with this. What a disgrace to this country, an american car, yeah right. I want a fix and I want to know when this is going to happen. The service department says they can't do anything about the neglect on your part of this problem and say they're sorry. I want an answer to when this is going to be remedied. Please contact me soon!!

"takata recall" it has been over 8 months since I received a recall on this. As of today there is still no resolution from GM. This is irresponsible considering "it can cause serious injury or death". they should be forced to resolve this situation in some fashion so I am not risking the safety of my family while waiting.

I write the following on behalf of willie G. weddington of 108 karen road, Napa, ca 94558. "I received a recall notice in July, 2015. I have been unable to get the recalled airbag replaced to date. This has been an unreasonably long time in waiting for the repair. I am told there is no fix and there are no parts to fix my vehicle. The dealer is unable to provide me with a comparable vehicle loaner. My request for a replacement vehicle has been denied. My requests for rental reimbursement for a comparable vehicle have been denied. I have incurred expenses and will continue to incur expenses due to the lack of use of my vehicle. In addition, I am a U.S. veteran. I have a veteran's administration construction loan for my house and I have been unable to meet the deadlines due to the lack of use of my Chevrolet. I have incurred, and continue to incur, additional expenses trying to ensure all materials, equipment and workers are at the property site."
