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

Avalanche 8-cyl

The consumer bought this vehicle brand new, the brakes will come on by themselves. Took the vehicle to the dealer, they said the brake fluid was contaminated. Then, took vehicle to GMC, they gave the consumer a run around and thought that consumer did something to it. The vehicle has been sitting for a little over a month. Now, took it to a local mechanic, who determined that the brake fluid was not contaminated. The dealership said this vehicle was not covered under a warranty, and noticed this on October 1, 2004.
