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.

Well where should I begin, the first problem was the clunking of the front end when going in and out of driveways, the first steering shaft was replaced, a couple of months later the speedometer started making noise, that was replaced, then the clunking noise reappeared, this time it supposedly needed to be lubed, it was fine, however noise reappeared, then the second shaft was installed, the tire sensor light intermittently comes on when ever it feels like it, and tire pressure is normal, now the windshield wipers will not shut off when it rains except when you turn the vehicle off, however they come back on when you restart the car after hours of sitting, my wife is expecting our second child and also drive my 5 year old in this vehicle, this car is piece junk, GM needs to take back pride in there craftsmanship step up to the plate like there consumers did and fix this ?!@#$%! they need to extend there warranties because there cars do not last as they mislead you to believe!!!

Dealer informs me of problem with steering column. Requires over $100 to fix. Service rep indicates that this problem occurs numerous time per month in their shop. I have friends with like vehicles that say that this problem has occurred with their vehicles. I postponed service this time as I was told that even with lubricant "fix" to expect repeated and continual repetitions of this problem. I am also waiting for a recall to be issued for this problem as I understand it is so prevalent.
