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.

The paint on my 2001 Chevy Tracker is forming white spots on the roof of the car. Is this a paint defect? I wax my car four times a year and wash it weekly, so poor care for the vehicle isn't a problem. When I turn on the A/C, it sounds like someone's clicking a computer mouse at a 100mph. It drives me nuts. When my car is idling after startup, it makes a clunking noise. While driving my car recently on the highway, it was very hard to control and I was only going 70mph. Sometimes the steering wheel never turns back either, while parking. My car is a 2001 Chevy Tracker with only 54,700 miles on it. I am thinking about writing a letter to GM to have all my problems resolved at no cost to me.

My fan rumbled from day one. Within a month, it began hitting the radiator. The dealer said snow and ice had bent it. They beat it back into shape. Another month goes by, and the same thing occurs. This time the dealer blames it on rocks. I requested to speak to a factory rep., but was never contacted. Now my cooling unit has a hole in it from the fan blades, and needs repair. I am being told this is not a dasign error, and I must pay for all expenses out of my pocket. Why buy a new vehicle and all the extra insurance, if the factory isn't held liable.
