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.

2006 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 182006

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,000 miles


2006 8.1 liter 2500 Avalanche cut out going down the highway. We were stranded for about 30 minutes during which time we called onstar for help. The vehicle restarted and also reset the engine hour meter to zero. We brought it into our dealer tom bannon Chevrolet and they could find no problem. I read where this is a problem and you are researching it. Add us to your list of people it happened to. The reporting date is approximate. I would have to verify with hotel records.
