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.

2013 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

The dashboard has cracked in two different places near the airbags. I see online this is very common and Chevrolet doesn't seem to be very receptive to fixing this safety concern. I believe the cracks just happened overnight since I noticed them first thing in the morning on my way to work.

The window trim on the rear window has a known defect. The plastic frame of the window cracks and separates allowing water to enter the cab. GM is aware of the defect but is unwilling to replace what is clearly a design flaw.
