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.

Gm. should be standing behind this problem with the transfer cases! Instead they are not even saying a word and making there faithful Chevrolet fans come up with money they work hard for and not standing behind their mistake for using cheap transfer case housings which wear a hole in the back of the housing .Then before you know anything is wrong as you are driving down the road it begins to lock up and an cost anywhere from 1500 to 2500 or more to replace with a (rebuilt Transfer Case) depending if someone puts it in for you or you do it your self I am mad as _ at Chevrolet and feel i will buy Ford trucks from now on !!!!! This is a re call that is being ignored on Gm's behalf !!!!!I I am a poor man who could not afford this repair !!!!! I had to get a loan to fix this .No wonder Gm went bankrupt???I was a Chevy truck and car lover ! The newer Gm Sucks and I'm DONE WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
