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.

2010 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 102011

Avalanche 8-cyl

  • 5,000 miles


Vehicle suffers from excessive front/side window fogging in below freezing temperatures and the manual HVAC controls will not permit the use of A/C to remove the humidity from the cabin. In summer months or temperatures above freezing, the A/C will engage when the front window defroster is enabled and is effective. With the HVAC system in full defrost and no A/C, the fogging actually gets worse and visibility decreases to the point where it is no longer safe to drive and we have had to pull over and wipe the windshield and side glass down. This has happened 6 or so times since acquiring the vehicle new in 2010. An attempt to have the dealer resolve it was not successful.
