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.

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,569 miles


: the contact stated every time the brake pedal was applied the brakes pulsate. The vehicle was taken to dealer. Upon inspection the front and rear rotors were corroded. The dealer attempted to turn the rotors however; due to the corrosion they were unable to do so, therefore the rotors were replaced. In a separate incident, while using the air conditioner and heater fan, smoke came from the vents. The fan was turned off and the vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection. The compressor, fan and relay was replaced.
