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.

2011 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #1

May 062011


  • 70,680 miles


2002 Chevy Avalanche - problems with ABS brakes, truck won't stop as described in NHTSA action # PE05020, called the local dealer where I purchased new in 2002. I was told the recall is VIN # specific, however the NHTSA action describes the recall as state specific( I reside in Aurora, Ohio-southeastern snow belt of lake erie). The vehicle had brake work done 2 yrs after purchase and the service and repair form stated " rear brakes corroded causing premature failure ". my complaint is why won't Chevy or the dealer honor this recall when it states state specific in the recall. Last night during a short trip, under 20 miles, the brakes started smoking with severe pedal pulsation. The vehicle has 70,680 miles as of today-5/07/11.
