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.

Solstice 4-cyl

  • 29,740 miles


I was driving my Solstice on the high way at 55mph in the left lane. All of the sudden it seemed like the motor died I started to slow down at a rapid speed, down to 25mph in a blink of an eye. I stepped on the gas peddle again and the car started to shake and rattle it also was jolting forward. As I was pulling off the side of the high way the car again jumped forward causing me to clip the curb with the passenger side and scratch the door. It was only after I shut the car off and restarted it that any of the warning lights came on. I later found out that GM knew about a catastrophic catalytic converter failure back in 2009 and would fix it at no charge. Why did they not make a recall and fix this at that time" after contacting them by telephone they say they will not repair the scratch on my car. How are they not at fault? if someone would have been behind me and crashed into me and killed me, would they have the same attitude" it was their part that failed, and yet I am stuck bailing them out once again.
