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.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #3

Jul 282015

Avalanche 1500

  • Automatic transmission
  • 112,731 miles


As I was attempting to slow down the brake pedal continued to travel to the floor and the brake light warning and service brake system light came on .I had my brakes services already so I knew it wasn't the brake pads itself. I was quickly closing in on the vehicle in front of me and reduced my speed by standing on the brakes. I was able to stop within a foot of the car in front of me. After this I pulled over to inspect my vehicle. didn't see anything at that time.
