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 am currently trying to get GM to honor my warranty for catalytic converter that is bad. I made the original request for a part to be ordered on March 15, 2006. On June 29, 2006, I contacted my insurance company geico because I had a mechanical breakdown insurance on my vehicle and they basically said that there is nothing that they can do at this time because GM will have to replace the part under warranty. It is now 5 1/2 months later and I still do not have a catalytic converter for my vehicle. I have contacted GM on two separate occasions. I could not get an inspection sticker due to the fact that it would fail the emissions test required by East baton rouge parish, Louisiana. My sticker is now expired and has been since June 30, 2006. I have contacted Mr. Ted trimble, epa emissions and warranty dept, on two separate occasions but I can not get a return phone call concerning my problem. Who do I speak to now! my van is emitting trash into the air. Does anybody there care? GM is telling me that the manufacturer of the part is asking too much money for the part and GM doesn't want to pay it. That is flat out not honoring a warranty.
