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.

Definitely the biggest piece of garbage car I ever owned in my life. I wish I would of never got rid of my 2000 Dodge Avenger. That car had 165,000 miles on it and never ever once gave me any trouble. Now I am stuck with this pile of garbage until I find something else.

Here is my list of the damn problems this car is giving me:

1.) Intake gasket manifold needs replaced eventually. I have to add a jug of coolant once every week and a half or two.

2.) Back passenger window is stuck. Thankfully it is not down.

3.) The Engine sometimes will tap very loud when I first go and start it up when it's cold then the noise will go away after a mile or so.

4.) And the main issue in this category is why does this car rev up on its own?? Each morning when I go to work this p.o.s will rev up to around 2,500-3,000 RPMS on its own. What the hell is up with that? Then it will return back to normal. This happens when I go and start it and let it idle for a few minutes then it will just rev up on its own. Somethings not right this car is heading the wrong direction. It only has 65,000 miles on it currently. Stay away from this car don't buy from GM EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!
