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 car had a simultaneous failure involving the steering, xenon headlamps and power train, specifically the all wheel drive system. All systems need to be replaced but GM has not made replacement parts available, has not corrected production errors in current parts. Current parts on market fail with 10000 miles.

The headlights of this car is so weak that I could not see the road when I was driving in the dark. I did polish the outside of the lights box but it did not make any difference. I replaced the lights with Saab but it is still very hard to see the road in the dark.
