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.

Lights wouldn't work. took it to local gm dealer, told it was the dimmer switch and it is a common problem with these cars and fixed it under recall.

I've been having work done on this car for about a year now and everytime it get back to me there is another problem. This time it just happens to be the headlights. I would really appreciate it if I could figure this out without having to give up an arm and a leg to fix it.
