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 engineers who decided to put plastic gears with a metal bolt to spin them are the reason GM is owned by the government. It's very common with these cars to have the gears stripped more then once. You can actually, for free, spin the gear 180 degrees, because the motor uses exactly half of the gear. After that you have to replace the gear or the motor.
