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.

Alero GLS 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission

The master control switch that turns the cruise control system off an on stopped working and the backlights also stopped working, making it hard to use them in the dark. I found brand new OEM switches on eBay for $35.00 so I replaced both.
