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.

problem #1

Avalanche Z66 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,358 miles

The speedometer goes from a normal display, to giving erratic readings( ie. sitting at a red light and it reads 100 MPH). It would give normal readings for months, and then starts this erratic behavior again. In Jan. 2015 I called Ed Bozart Chev. in Las Vegas, NV. A service associate advised that GM had a recall period for this problem, but it has since expired. I questioned as to why I wasn't notified and he advised " It wasn't a safety issue, and it wasn't mandatory that I be notified". During this period I had the Extended Warranty Plan with GM, but when it stopped giving false readings, I thought that it was a computer problem, and it had reset itself.

I took the vehicle to Ed Bozart Chev. hoping to receive an adjustment per the Consumer Reports mag. Form Jan.2015 pg.6. ‘Goodwill money.

Service mgr. Al Belford denied my request.
