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.

problem #2

Sunfire XL 2.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


At about 75000 miles (120000 km) my odometer light went out. I can still check my odometer reading by pointing a flashlight at the odometer. Thankfully,the emission test people didn't take an issue with this problem. The light cannot be fixed; the entire instrument cluster needs to be taken out and replaced. I hear a new cluster is worth $800 in Canada. But one can buy a used one from scrapyard.

Sunfire 2.2L Ecotec

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

I guess this problem is also quite common, after Googling it, I found out that the odometer light goes out and the whole instrument panel has to be replaced? WTF!? This sucks... specially if the emissions testing gets anal about this. We'll soon shall see... I will probably have to fix this along with the A/C broken knob issue...
