Folks,

NavyLifer took the time to obtain for us a current listing of active informational and technical TSB's as they apply to the Caprice PPV. Everyone needs to understand that is up to the individual to review this list and then seek further information or guidance--the actual bulletin, or at least inquire about what is in it that may be pertinent to a vehicle issue--from a dealer or an aftermarket source such as Alldata that's licensed to distribute the information (yeah, for a fee).

Unfortunately a majority of the service information on the vehicle is copyright protected and proprietary to GM and it's subsidiaries. While we do have some files available (for instance - the upfitting & sales guides) which also may contain documents classified as a governmental "public record", we can't blanket publish all the TSB's. We like our little happy home here and very much want to keep it humming along. So, the onus is on you, the owner to be proactive once we give you the lead to see if it applies to your car and if you need to take action.

The list Bill provided me was 6 pages long. I have reviewed it and am eliminating the obvious goo & dribble (I'm sure we'd all like to hear about dealer best practices on when to submit a field product report....), but since I'm doing a manual re-type of this information you are subject to the limits of my fingers. Anything not pertinent to our operation of these vehicles is being zapped. If you need the complete list for any particular reason, I'm sure your dealer can provide more information.

List follows in next post. Enjoy! And.... everyone please thank Bill for his tireless dedication to our cars and the system!

Eric
