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.

While pulling onto a pave road, a 3 inch lip of pavement, at less than 5 mph, the rear passenger tire must have pulled such that the anchor bracket of the subframe for the inside lower toe link tore nearly completely off of the frame. Thankfully I was not going fast, and reading the prior posts, this is a significant problem which GM should not have ignored in the past, nor in the future.

When I called GM, they would not acknowledge any of these complaints, however did acknowledge the infamous ignition recall. I replaced three cylinders thus far on this car.
