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.

  • 40,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Uplander. The vehicle did not always start on the first or second attempt and the transmission slipped and jerked while the contact was driving. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealership where the transmission was flushed and the fuel pump was changed; however, the problem continued. The dealer could not explain the cause of the failure. The VIN was unavailable at the time of the complaint. The failure mileage was approximately 40,000. The current mileage was approximately 64,000. Updated 11/03/10.
