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.

2004 Opel Astra Owner Comments

problem #1

Astra CD 1.6L 4s

  • Automatic transmission

I THINK THIS CAR IS MADE FOR COLD COUNTRIES ONLY BECAUSE THE MAIN CAUSE FOR THE PROBLEMS IS HEAT..HEAT.. HEAT. THIS CAR BECOMES HORRIBLE IN HOT COUNTRIES AS EGYPT AND MIDDLE EAST BECAUSE ENGINE TEMPERATURE IS MUCH MORE DEPENDABLE ON THE WEATHER SO. WHILE I DROVE IN WINTER IT WAS WORKING GOOD. BUT, IN SUMMER IT WAS HORRIBLE BECAUSE THE CONTROL UNIT IS A PART OF ENGINE BLOCK WHICH IS VERY HOT IN SUMMER CAUSING UNSTABLE CONTROL FOR ELECTRICAL CAR PARTS LIKE SOUND, LIGHTING, TRANSMISSION CONTROL...ETC.
