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 3.4L V6

It's bullshit. I bought this car used at a buy here pay here. I test drove it and it seemed like a really good car. The low engine coolant light came on so I figured that it needed coolant in it. It was 4 days since I had got the car and put coolant in it and the day after I did it f*cked up on me. What the f*ck. Here is the sh*t kicker. Superior Auto sold this car to me without even looking it over first or asking me if I wanted them to look at it. How stupid is that. I really don't f*cking care because they are not going to be happy with me tomorrow when I go in there and it's not going to be pretty.
