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.

problem #2

General Motors pickup hood mounted latch fatigue. I have noticed complete separation and severe wear in the welded engine compartment hood latch that could result in the hood coming up at high speed and either blinding the driver or the hood separating from the vehicle upon failure of the hood latch.

Driver door ajar: Driver information always shows that the door is not close. Because it is an electrical or equipment malfunction it is not covered by the bumper to bumper warranty anymore. Problem developed a few weeks ago. My odometer was 38500 miles. The dome lights has to be turned off manually. No entry lights because due to the malfunction of the door latch the interior lights have to be off. It creates a safety issue at night time. Why do I have you pay to have it fixed ?
