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.

Most recent is a driver's side door/window controls that have completely stopped working. Controls have been sporadic for over a month and have now, and it stopped completely with the window in the down position. I have been lucky not to experience the burning/melting issue others have before it stopped working all together - but my window is now in the down position and cannot be closed. In addition to the door/window controls, the rear window wiper stopped working about a year ago, the fuel sensor went out over a year and a half ago so tank always registers empty and check engine light is always on. (I have received the offer from Chevy to have the fuel sensor repaired, but because I will be responsible for half of the repair costs, I have yet to have it done -- Chevy should pay 100%, not 50%). I've already replaced the tie rods about a year ago, but was just told that they need to be replaced again. I've had issues with the car violently shaking @ 60 mph shortly after I bought it (used) from a dealer. After quite the run around and four extended stays at the dealers repair shop it was magically taken care of after I threatened to file "lemon law" paperwork. I'm just done. The consumer stated shortly after, the windows controls for the other three windows began to work again sporadically, except for the driver's window which was propped closed. On occasion, when the driver's side widow button was touched my mistake, the window would move slightly until being stopped by the 2X4. The consumer finally had the recall repairs done, after waiting on the parts. The dealer removed the 2X4 from the driver's side and the consumer was charged $105.55 to get the window operational again. Updated 05/23/13
