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.

I purchased a 2001 Chevrolet Tracker lt used with 109K miles. The vehicle was sold to me by a dealership without safety inspection stickers. I took the vehicle to my mechanic to have it inspected and was told the frame was rotted, including the front frame, suspension and side rocker panels. The dealership did not disclose the damage to me and refuses to refund the cost of the vehicle or make the repairs. I am currently trying to have the issue mediated by the pa state attorney general's office. I am also aware that Chevrolet has a safety notice on the front suspension of 2001-2003 Chevy Trackers indicating that the front suspension may rust and separate from the vehicle. The inspection period on my vehicle is expired and the vehicle is unsafe to drive.

We have a 2001 Chevy Tracker with the rusted crossmember/subframe that Chevrolet won't repair. I think this is definitely a safety issue. I called Chevy reps. And all I got was " were sorry" but the car is 1200 miles over the limit for repairs. We took ours to our local mechanic for regular maintenance and they found the rusted crossmember and advised us to not drive the vehicle, it was not safe. So now we without a very needed car.

The car was steering funny and pulling to the left especially when braking. I heard a metal bang noise at one point and made an appointment to have it checked where the mechanic was shocked to find the crossmember subframe fractured which would have certainly lead to a serious accident and I was "lucky" to have made it to the garage.

My wife was on her way to work when she stopped at a stop sign, the car veered to the left and was hard to steer. I was at a friends house and she brought the vehicle over there for me to check out. After lifting the front end, the right side lower control arm fell off of the crossmember. After closer inspection, the entire crossmember is rusted through. If the control arm had fallen while she was driving, the car may have flipped causing injuries or possibly death. Chevrolet knew about this problem since at least December of 2006 and issued a special coverage bulletin. I never received a letter informing me of any problem. After calling the GM consumer help desk, I was informed that they would not be covering my vehicle due to the mileage. Since this is not a part which is subject to wear and tear it should be covered under a time, not mileage, constraint if any, since this is a safety issue.
