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.

Front bumper design is dangerous. GM indicated to me that the clearance of the truck's plastic bumper is eight inches. Bumper fell off backing out of 6-8" of snow on driveway surface. Dangerous driving on winter roads with low front bumper clearance. Other: Transmission vibration. Evident when vehicle puchased on 8/29/02. AWD light appeared on and off began Dec. 25, 2002. Dealer said AWD light problem was resolved on January 7, 2003.
