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 #2

  • Automatic transmission

Steering wheel has not been centered in front of the drivers seat. While seated the steering wheel was 2 1/2 inches to the right of the drivers seat. This condition fatigued the drivers arms while driving any distance. GM customer service was contacted 6-19-03. The consumer is afraid that if the air bag deploys it may injure him instead of saving him.
