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 first 2 times the AC Condensor had to be replaced the car was under the extended warrenty. The 3rd time it was out of warranty. The dealership quoted a price of $1200 to replace it. I complained about the repeated failure and they gave me a number to call at GM. I called GM and they said it was "normal wear and tear" I live in MA. I run the AC maybe 3 months out of the year. GM did give me a voucher for $500 off my next GM car. BFD! I also have had a problem with a leaky intake gasket (another $1000 repair) which is a known issue on several GM models. Why would I want to buy another one?
