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.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic Owner Comments

I own a 2014 Chevrolet Sonic. The radio no longer works and I have no audible warning chimes for keys in ignition, door open, turn signal, seatbelt. Also no dash lights. I see there is a recall 17130. I have spoke with the dealership in my area, they refuse to do the repairs because I do not have a recall letter. When checking my VIN, there are no reported recalls. I need a recall letter so I may have this repaired. Thank you

Sonic 4-cyl

While driving down the highway, going approximately 65mph, the dash lights including speedometer turn off and reset. They stay off from 10-20 seconds then reset back on. This has happened multiple times in the last 3 months. Has only happened in 6th gear and is very dangerous knowing the repair dealership can not figure out what triggers it.
