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.

Seat belts have never fit properly.engage neck area rather than shoulder area of any size adult(we are average 5"8")-parking brake repaired in first six months of ownership as making strange twanging noises.problem returned recently (defective design?) and when changing tires recently we realised that the drivers side wheel would spin with brake "on"----the stereo display fails consistantly in hot weather.GM reman wait list is excessive(at least 6 months) for admitted defect by dealer personnel.
