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.

Vehicle was purchased and one week later found out that the headlights, while driving in the daytime, do not come on. Considers this a safety defect, vehicle is only equipped with parking lights, dealer was contacted and stated that the problem could not be changed, vehicle was made like this.

Consumer' S gas tank is on straps. When stopping there is a 2 second delay, then there is a rumbling noise where as the gas gushes to the back of tank, causing the tank to move against the chassis. The dealer installed rubber bushings between tank and chassis to minimize sounds. Vehicle will do this every time unless the tank is full or low. Vehicle has been serviced at least nine times for this problem, Chevrolet acknowledges the problem, and says they do not have a solution. In addition, the front driver's seat has been replaced. Also, the window fell out from the sliding door because the latch was installed up side down/the headlight assembly was replaced due to loud whistling whenever driving more than 50mph.
