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.

Montana Extended 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission

Transmission has lost 4th gear and has no lock up. Van has less than 80,000 and needs the transmission rebuilt. All GM wanted to do was give me a $2000 credit toward the purchase of one of their new pieces of junk.

Update from Mar 27, 2012: Fixed transmission - $1600.00

The dealership had my van for 5 days, thank goodness I bought the extended warranty otherwise it would have cost $2700.00. I have never had so many problems with one vehicle!!
