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.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

The problem in question is a 2002 Chevy Avalanche. There are problems with water getting into the passenger area, soaking the floor. This constant water causes the air bag sensor to corrode. The sensor is located on the floor under the drivers seat. I have had the sensor replaced twice. This will continue to happen for as long as the Avalanche is prone to this problem. If the sensor becomes faulty and causes the truck not to deploy or possibly deploy accidentally there could be damages, injuries and possible loss of life.
