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.

Takata recall, parts not available; passenger side outside mirror fell off while car was parked; fuel door will not unlock; air conditioner makes a squealing and rattling noise; car is slow to accelerate when air conditioner is on; occasionally unable to turn key in ignition because steering wheel locks up; one tire loses pressure and has to have air every week or two; repeated problems with loud exhaust. I am the original owner of the 2008 Saturn Astra and it has 48,600 miles. I started having trouble with the car after owning it for 4 years and have had both new and ongoing problems since.

The low tire pressure light would come on frequently and I have taken the vehicle in multiple times to the dealer. The dealer would say that there was no issue and they just put air into tire. This has been going on for years. This month I had to buy two new tires due to bulges and tires going flat. Aaa stated that the tire was leaking from the valve stem, which an online search has indicated this to be a common defect in the Astra and there has been a service bulletin about the issue.
