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.

This is a problem that is normal for gm products with security system. The dealer just keeps making money on parts & service.

After car starts once in morning if you turn the key off you cannot get it to start again for a while. You turn the key on the security light comes on and stays on. The car will not start if it does this. You may be stranded for some time. The longest I've had to wait so far is 3 hrs.
