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.

Both tires on the front of the vehicle are causing wear on front struts and shock absorbers.the car has been realigned, but was still experiencing rubbing of the struts. Contacted dealer, who was suppose to contact GM of this situation. But currently no other repairs were done.
