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.

From May 2015 to Sept. 2015, my vehicle high-revved and died on the highway three times... the same three lights would come on: Traction control, check engine, reduced engine power. Due to the timing of incidents, autonation refused to accept the vehicle although it was warrantied. I called GM corporate and explained that this was a danger to the safety of others and jeopardized my life, and they made attempts to remedy the situation at hand.. autonation called and apologized for the lack of customer service, but they did not schedule an appointment to find the problem. On a day off from work, I took it to the same autonation to have them run diagnostics, and the turned me away. This happened a document three times. I took it to another Chevy house, and they also refused the car. Driving it endangered my life as well as other drivers. Fast forward a couple months, I find out the throttle body is bad, and no recall has been put out. On a separate occasion, condensation had begun on the interior of my vehicle. Upon further inspection, my floorboards were sopping wet, and water began to fill the cab of my car. Autonation did find that a hose had been cut and had been leaking fluid throughout the cab. Today, 2-9-16 at appx. 0426, my vehicle began filling the cab with noxious fumes and smoking upon parking from underneath the hood for no obvious reason. No lights or chimes initiated inside the vehicle. This vehicle could have set fire at any moment had I kept driving. This vehicle is very dangerous to myself and those around, and no one at autonation takes it seriously. I hope by advancing my problems with the 2014 Chevy Spark will steer potential buyers the other way, and I also hope that GM will do the right thing and buy the car back. When a car dies on the most dangerous highway in Texas for no reason and starts smoking, there is obviously something wrong.

The engine shuts off while the car is in park and while driving. The dealership can not find the reason why. All they will say is the there is nothing wrong with the car.

Rental car - Chevy Spark. Went to make a left hand turn and was not able to power vehicle. Slowly started rolling into fast moving traffic (from both directions) and could not accelerate. Not sure if this is a faulty ignition or a power failure. Car was going from a fully stopped position to a left hand turn.very dangerous and would have been in collision had not other cars in traffic come to a stop to avoid a collision. I am unsure of year (2013 - 2015) as did not record this information.

After fully charging up the electric vehicle, going down hill at approx 40mph, lost all power in brakes, steering control and the forward propulsion system. Due to loss of power veered out of control onto oncoming traffic and braking system was not responding to pumps. After pulling on steering wheel hard finally got vehicle under control and pulled to the side. Vehicle would not restart and had to be towed to dealer. Did not have vehicle and did not drive the vehicle more than 30 miles before incident happened. 2014 Chevy Spark electric vehicle. Returned vehicle to dealership permanently.
