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.

problem #1

Alero 2.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,500 miles

This care only has 52000 miles on it. the service book says it should not need major service until 100000. I have had 2 different mechanics tell me that me horrible gas mileage (200 miles/tank) is because I need a complete tune up. $450. This care should barely be broken in. Even I couldn't treat a care that bad. The carfax on it said 1 owner.
