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.

The turn signals on my vehicle quit working. I contacted GM and they advised me to take to dealer. Dealer found a defective hazard switch. My vehicle is a 2002 Alero, there have been recalls for the same problem on earlier models but not mine, however it is the same defect.
