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

problem #1

Avalanche 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission

Transmission broke first, then differential bearings all went bad, so Differential was replaced - with a new one that did NOT have the engineering defects of the original factory installed part. I thank God every day that I NEVER buy an American engineered car NEW. I always buy used since American cars always have poor quality parts engineered into their design. A brake line EXPLODED and all four brake lines had to be replaced as they were made of cheap metal and not stainless steel. Another $2,000. If buying American, buy USED.
