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.

While driving straight down the highway at highway speed the air bag light on the dash board indicates the passenger air bag is off when there is an adult passenger present in the passenger seat. If the passenger bounces around on the seat the light may go off and it may come on randomly for no apparent reason. The air bag light may indicates the air bag is off at any time it feels like it. There is no rhyme or reason for the light going off or on. If the air bag is an important safety feature then this type of a problem should be fixed asap. Thank you

The transmission shifter is not transmitting an electrical signal to allow the ignition key to turn to the off position and will only turn as far as the acc (accessory) position so that the battery continues to drain and die leaving me stranded in the night and on the road and in danger often. A locksmith said continuing to turn and pull on the key trying to remove it myself could result in serious neck and head injury if the airbag where to deploy while I am trying to get the key unstuck. I took to Chevrolet dealer and he said he would need a recall code/number to accept my vehicle for repair with this issue.
