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 experiencing loss of coolant. Found out the problem was faulty intake manifold /gasket. Cost of repair $700. Went on line and found a site with over 1,000 people with same problem. Mechanics are saying it is a problem with all GM engines. They should all be recalled. Hopefully, I caught mine in time. Hundreds didn't and their engine blew. Mechanic said had I taken this out on the highway with the leak my engine would have failed. This is a serious and expensive problem and is affecting millions. Something has to be done!!
