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.

The rear window in my Avalanche) I was washing my truck and took out the rear window to clean it and I notice that the rubber that is around it, is totally cracked on the driver side and in the otherside its staring to crack my question is do I have to check with other Avalanche owners to see if thats only on mine or depends on how many letters about this you recive.

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 14,500 miles
I was removing the rubber mat in the bed of the 2003 Avalanche truck to clean it. To remove the mat you must first remove the plastic transition plate at the front, just behind the rear seat. To remove this plate you must slide your finger under it to pop it up. As you slide your finger under it you will slice your fingers on the razor sharp plastic. I sliced my fingers to the bone, the cuts should have had stitches but I butterfly bandaged them. I have not corrected the problem as of yet, but I think filing down the sharp edge would prevent this from happening again.
