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.

Auto lights went out.. Was told by GM mechanic I didn't have auto lights. Told him damn funny thing, I'd had for for a year, now I don't!?!?! Talked to me like I was a total dumbass female, snickered when I told them!! Called GM & Automotive Center and complained. Told me to bring it back it, that YES I did have DRLs (auto lights) and to bring it back in. Replaced computer chip, worked for awhile, then out again.

DRL's out again. Handed more BS from dealer about the cause. Did replace chip AGAIN. 4th time. Need solution as to why they're malfunctioning.
