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 a complaint about my 2009 Traverse. I am having problems with the temperature gauges for the ac and heater. Took it to GMC dealer and they told me that the problem is the gauges. It just started happening 2 weeks ago out of the blue. I never had a GMC this is my first one and it will be my last as I had many problems with it but never had a problem with any of my Hyundai's.

The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Traverse. The contact stated that the heat adjuster knobs in the rear of the vehicle became extremely hot to the touch. The heater was not activated when the contact noticed the failure. When the heat was activated, the knobs would become scorching hot. A rear passenger touched the knob and sustained burns to her hand. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where they advised the contact that the vehicle was designed for the knobs to become hot because there were bulbs inside the knobs. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was contacted and they offered no assistance. The failure mileage was approximately 29,800.
