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.

When the car had 4500 miles, the engine stopped running when I was driving at 40 mph -- there were no warning signs or other problems beforehand. The car would not restart immediately - nothing happened when I turned the key -- then, after 45 minutes it started but the engine was very noisy and power to accelerate was very poor. The dealer fixed the noisy engine by recalibrating the PCM but they said no fault codes were registered in the car's computer so they can't figure out why the car stalled. I advised them about NHTSA recall campaign # 02V121000 fuel:fuel filter line where the symptoms were very similar to mine. They said there was no GM recall and there was no problem with my fuel filter fitting. The stall occured on 5/14/02 and I have driven 600 miles since then without incident. I called the GMC # listed in the recall notice on 5/24/02 and they said no recalls applied to my car (which was mfg'd in 9/01) and they had no knowledge of the NHTSA recall campaign # 02V121000. I'm concerned that whatever caused my car to stall while driving will reoccur and it is dangerous trying to pull over across traffic lanes to the shoulder without engine power or power steering.

Mirrors problem - the outside mirrors emit a disturbing whistling noise when exceeding 45 mph. It appears that the seems of the outside casing are causing the noise. Dealer says GM has no solution to problem. Steering problem - a grunt/crunch noise emits from the passenger front wheelwell when taking sharp left turns. No problems with right turns. Dealer has been notified.
