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.

Last year I had the same problem. The right headlight motor broke. I couldnt afford to fix it. I got it fixed in July 03. Now in September 03 the left is gone. Im very upset with this. Dont you think GM could make something last longer then 4 or 5 years? I cant afford this. I just put over $3, ooo into this car between tire rods brakes, headlights, new passenger mirror, universal joints, everything is going all at once give me a break. Im 24 and I have owned an 87 & 95 Firebird besides this one. I love the car but something needs to be done with how long stuff lasts in it. Melony mcneaney

Throttle pedal gets caught by floor mat when slammed to floor for fast acceleration. Floor mat does not have anything to prevent it from moving in front of pedal, at this point, vehicle stays accelerating.
