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 was at a red light, foot on the brake when the vehicle accelerated jumping from 1000rpm to 3000rpm, multiple times in a row. Causing my car to lunge forward over and over again. I contacted the dealership immediately & was asked to drive my car in. I was headed to a destination first. When I arrived at my destination, I turned the car off for approximately 5 minutes. When I turned my car back on, there was a loud bang noise, car smelled like something was on fire & the acceleration did not return. What did happen was I now had no air conditioning. Dealership stated it was the ac compressor that went out and caused all the issues.

Navigation system - turn by turn. Provide dangerouisly direction. Instruct you to make turn where there is no street to turn onto, I.e., instructs you to make turns off a overpass from a bridge and fall down onto the interstate below. This a safety, dangerous, hazards, life threatening component in the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, especially at night. I have taken the vehicle back to the dealer, no help! called GM customer service in detroit=no help. This nav system is a deadly safety hazard. That provide deadly information to the driver. This need to be corrected asap - by issuing a recall for 2016 Chevy nav system. GM has been slow to fix reported safety issues which has resulted in death/fatality.
