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

Nov 202004

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160 miles
The headlamps, parking lamps, fog lamps, and daytime running lamps have condensation form on the inside of the lenses during cold weather after the lights have been turned on. This reduces the effectiveness of the lights and can lead to unsafe driving conditions. The dealer refuses to replace the lamps under warranty even though NJ division of motor vehicles says they will fail the vehicle when I take it for the state motor vehicle inspection.
