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.

I have to play with the switch sometimes to get the driver's door window to roll down. Haven't had it fixed yet...

  • Automatic transmission

it happens all the time, when you don't need it down it will go down, when you need it down you look like a jackass when you have to open your door because your window wont un roll. Its so frustrating, Im so glad im not a smoker or I would probably just leave the window down an inch the hole year!

Alero GLS V6

Driver side power window intermittently will not open. Button feels mushy and just has a wrong feel. Just as suddenly, it will begin working again. It becomes a pain in the butt when I have to show ID to get onto military bases and have to open the door instead of the window.
