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.

I have replace my tail/brake light several times since I purchase the vehicle. Just this morning I have to go to Chevrolet service department to get my brake light replaced. It cost me $14.79 to have it replaced. So I decided to research the recalls to see if there is a recall. I remember getting a letter earlier indicating that the light would be replaced free of charge for a certain amount of time. Please let me know if this is correct. Thank you, betty wilson.

Dealer was contacted Jan 2005 to schedule replacement parts for rear lights as part of the recall. I was told that they could not do it without the recall notice number that was sent to me. Called back a day later and gave the dealer the number from the recall notice. He told me that the parts would need to be ordered and they would call me. I received a third recall notice from Chevrolet on 2/26/05 and called the dealer on 3/2/05 and spoke with a man in service. He told me that the parts were not ordered and that I would need to bring the car in for them to order the parts and then again when the parts come in. I have explained to him that I have replaced 6 taillight and brake lights within the last 6 months and why wasn't I informed of this when I called before. Apparently they do not have a call back procedure for when they screw up.

Exterior brake lights operate inconsistently. We replace bulbs and then they still don't work or work for a short period of time. We are not sure if the bulbs are prematurely burning out or if the brake light component is faulty. At times, without warning, the car will have no brake lights. Dangerous!
