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.

March 2008 my car started not responding properly with my throttle pedal position. I took it to 2 car dealers under warranty to have it repaired. While in stop and go traffic the car will accelerate on it's own. It has traveled in excess of 35 mph on it's own - I usually shift the car to nuetral to get it to stop. As of July 1 / 2008 the dealer has all but given up repairing this problem. I now have parked the car because it is unsafe to drive and hired a attorny to fight GM to repair or refund my money for this car.

The failure and current mileages were 38,000. Updated 06/30/08 the starter shorted out which caused the smoke. Updated
