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.

In December/08 my son was dropping off a friend and was slowly leaving the yard when one of the air bags in the drivers seat exploded for no reason. Because of the kms on my vehicle GM would not do anything about it. The mechanics at the GM shop had never heard of this before and said as long as the display light was on then the rest of them would be disabled, as I was concerned about them going off. Guess what...It happened again yesterday Feb 17/09 to the other seat now. We cannot afford to fix the problem because it would cost more money than the van is worth, its apparently very expensive. I'm scared to drive it now in case the one in the steering wheel decides to explode. Never another Chev product again!!! Seems to us that this should be a recall item. What are the chances of that happening????
