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.

this is just one thing in a long list of problems... gas gauge doesn't work, rear windows don't work, radio display doesn't work. when I open driver's door bell starts going like I left the key in. Rear brake lights don't work half the time. left headlight keeps going out. just the other day, the entire front consul lights and headlights went out. You can manually turn on the headlights but everything else will not work. Passenger window got stuck in down position, had to get pulled up and still have not replaced motor.

I am sick and tired of all my dashboard lights coming on and off at will. Had a friend (electrician) check fuses, nothing amiss, could drive along and pop, all of a sudden coolant, abs, parking brake, come on. Had under hood fuse box replaced when van was 6 months old (under warranty) now all this again. Even my doors lock and unlock all by themself. I had to tell kids that the van was haunted. I did check all my fluids, they are all fine. I know if I am dumb or frustrated enough to take it in, they (at GM) will rob me blind. Any suggestions.
