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.

2007 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

Own a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche 5.3L flex fuel V8 4X4. Recently when starting it, it turned over longer than normal, and then started with RPM gauge still at 0 RPM's. then put in reverse, and it said stabilitrack is off and needs servicing soon. Truck started moving backwards, and then seemed as if the brakes were applied, wheels simply would not move backwards. Tried to movie it back and forth several times. Thought brakes were applied or transfer case or axle or differential had issues. Then started it again 3 minutes later and everything worked fine and back to normal, except check engine light was on. An hour later, started it again and this time everything was back to normal. Called dealer and they stated they had seen this before, but it most likely won't be under warranty. Odd seeing as how a large number of other people with Tahoe/Suburban/Avalanche, and other vehicles expressed the same issue online and on forums...
