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.

Head lamps on this vehicle have started to haze. The haze has been getting progressively worse restricting the amount of light. I have found that it is getting increasingly difficult to see the road at 40mph or higher in the evening. The turn signals have a clear lens over them and do not appear to have the same condition. I have contacted GM. With multiple calls, E-mails and a trip to the dealer over a two week time frame, I was contacted by GM and told that although it was a safety hazard, there was nothing that they could do. My contention to GM was I'm sure when this vehicle was released for production they had no idea this condition existed and has for several years since. I felt that the lenses should be replaced under warranty.
