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 #1

Feb 192007

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,767 miles


When replacing (for the first time) the rear brakes on my 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche at 28,767 miles, I was informed by the dealership that the rear rotors had severe corrosion. The rotors were pitted such that they would require replacement. I asked about my 3-year bumper-to-bumper warranty because there was nothing I did to cause the defect. The dealership said that GM would not warranty the rotors. I contacted GM to inquire about the corrosion and their warranty as published in the sales brochure and warranty booklet. Plus, I have owned GM products for 30 years and never had any corrosion; brakes or otherwise. They replied that there was no defect in the parts; and that's it. As far as they are concerned, case closed.
