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.

My transmission is starting to slip, the ODLight has been blinking for a year or so, seems to happen more at speeds above 65 mph when lights starts flashing. Once it starts it stays on until I turn the truck off. I just replaced the front wheel bearing and now the ABS light is staying on, reset it once but only stayed off for few minutes. I've also started to hear a clunk coming from the rear axel so I'm not sure what is going on. I switched to a Ford because got tired of GMC intake gaskets costing me a small fortune, replaced three different sets at $800.00 a piece, they blamed it on the anti-freeze manufacturer which they decided to switch to. If tithe American auto makers don't stand up for their poor products and at least try and make a difference in helping on the repairs, I'm going to go foreign next time, at least they off a 100000 mile bumper to bumper and what I'm hearing they are doing pretty well.

I have my youngest daughter in a Kia and my youngest son in a VW. My older daughter had a Pontiac that also just seem to nickel dime her for ever with no support from GM.

Time for a change.
