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.

The contact mentioned that the vehicle was recently repaired under recall NHTSA campaign number: 14E021000 (electrical system). However, the failure persisted. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 23,000.

I received a letter on the ignition switch recall and how important (bolded and underscored) that it was to contact the dealer and get the report completed. However the dealer won't take an appoint because the parts are not in. The thinks next week, but now he said I'd need another letter from GM before I can schedule an appointment. Also the GM guy won't schedule an appointment even if he has the parts in. If I want to schedule an appoint for a date next week I would have to purchase service -- like an oil change to secure that day/time. I called GM customer service specific to the recall and they said that parts should be at the deal in about a week and likely receive a second letter. So now that I've wasted an hour of time going thru all the steps the first letter asks, I'm going to be driving a "dangerous vehicle", until I get a letter -- regardless of the parts are in. But -- if I pay for additional service I will be granted an appointment.
