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.

Warranty on catalytic converters on chev Silverado 1500 V6 4.3 went bad corrosion inside rattling. Replaced, but not the muffler which was checked at same time and the bellow was found to have been loose due to corrosion, and debris from the converters, but was not covered on warranty.
