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.

The torque converter on the transmission does not lock out at highway speeds and the transmission overheated.

I bought a new vehicle so I would not have major problems like this. The mechanics said that there is a work order out on the torque converters. It will cost me $1600 for tranmission plus rental car and $618 for the two wheel bearings. The torque converter knocks when I shift gears and causes pressure build up in the engine. The wheel bearings cause loud noise when the vehicle is moving and I was told that the wheel may come off. I should not have these major problems with a vehicle, that is why I bought a new one...I never had problems like this with other 4X4 vehicles. GMC should be made to recall these vehicles for these problems. There is to be work orders out on both the company is aware of the problems. This is my first Chevy and I think it will be my last.
