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.

Avalanche 8-cyl

1) I haven't replaced anything, or done anything that would cause this to happen. 2) A-problem that im experiencing is that when my Avalanche is sitting still in the driveway the speedometer shows that I am doing 30 to 40 miles per hour. When I drive on the freeway it completely stops working and goes to over 120 mph. B-my drivers side window doesn't work either, the motor slowly started giving out about two months ago. Now it doesn't work at all. It seems like many more Chevy Avalanche owners have the same issue; www.topix.net/forum/autos/Chevrolet-Avalanche/tji11lgm9554merna 3)the only thing I did for the window not working was check some fuses that were good.

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles
Power passenger window failed. Cable frays and jams in mechanism, window will not go up or down requiring costly replacement of the mechanism. This same failure occurred on my previous 2002 Avalanche and my sons 2000 Silverado pickup. The window was used very infrequently on all three vehicles.
