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.

Typical GM electronics, junk from the beginning. First the indicator lights began to fail, the the CD drive would overheat and seize, the the entire unit quit working.

This is a common issue that was extended back to the 04 model line a while ago, yet only covers a fraction of the VIN numbers. Mine is not part of the recalled group and I am supposed to pay for it out of pocket.

I had told the dealer (CMP Auto in Calgary AB) about the recall and the issue, they stated since my vin is not part of the group I would have to pay for it myself. They stated it would be 3 weeks before they could address it and would have to be diagnosed first even though I told them exactly the issue and the steps they needed to take to solve this. Time quoted from other online sources is 0.4 HR to repair, code is R0125: Radio - Program.

She would not honor this or accept that it was similar to the recalled issue and was still intent on setting me up for a diagnostic inspection and then repair. Needless to say, I did not book in.

Mad as Hell about not being able to play my CD's! This is about a new truck. I have been told it would run around 900.00 to replace it. That is crazy!
