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.

Since purchasing this vehicle in January of 2006 we have been required to make extensive repairs on an on going basis. The vehicle has to be aligned & balanced almost monthly which has resulted in us replacing the tires on 3 different occasions. The brakes have been replaced twice and the rotors have been turned twice in the past year. The most recent incident occurred 3 wks ago when my wife was driving home on a 55 mph 2 lane road when suddenly the check engine & check oil light came on. The vehicle just stopped. Upon towing it to a local auto repair shop we were informed the timing belt broke which warped the cam shaft. GM would do nothing until we towed it again, this time to a GM dealership. The vehicle was found to have extensive problems from the engine, to the timing belt, camp shaft, pistons, plugs and much more.
