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.

Bought the van for $4500 used and EVERYTHING worked perfect and it was checked by a GM mechanic. Too bad he informed me AFTER I bought the darn thing that it is an unreliable vehicle. Look for the other complaints

Rear coolant lines shot, 72,000 miles and $1200? Ridiculous. Took their suggestion to cap off rear lines.
