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.

replaced water pump with mechanic.... Had a lot of coolant issues. And coincidently a lady at my work had the exact same issue with her 2000 Alero, almost in the same week. I think that GM needs to get their heads on straight and see these issues in cars....

Apparently this seems to be a common problem within the Alero family, I have many freinds with the same car and who have had the same problem. Although no recall or interest from GM head office.
