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.

I have a 2000 grand prix and just a few months ago i pulled up to school to drop my 6yo son off and I was talkin to a friend in the parking lot when someone call out my name, when I turned to see what the problem was I seen that my car was smoking under toe hood, nit even five min. later flames started to come up. I called in to GM the next day when I was told about the recall, but GM keeps telling me that they cant cover it... can anyone help me out with information on what I need to do???
