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.

wow this is a crappy car, thought it was just mine. has anyone out there had their Alero's transmission take too long to get in gear and then sometimes tires skip and the car jumps? had the tranny fluid checked yesterday but they said it was ok, along with that problem our security light comes on when it wants to and has left us stranded 3 times. check engine soon, abs, anti-lock, and another engine light stays on all the time and has for about 2 years.

took it to the dealer and they say it is the hub assembly. do u think that it is what the problem is with the hub assembly and with the tranny could it all be with the hub? oh and also when u take it out of drive it makes a clanking noise, please help!!!
