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.

problem #1

C/K 1500 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


My truck will have been in the dealer a week on Saturday, and still not fixed after replacing calipers, brake pads, disc, hoses, master cylinder, and booster. I suspect the clearance between the booster push rod and master cylinder piston is too great, but they don't listen to me.

I am a retired master Tech and have worked for The Factory in various positions in parts and service. I went out and fixed cars no one else could. However now I am 78 years old and not able to do the work myself. It is extremely frustrating knowing what I do and did and what the shops and Dealers do to you today. It's all a big rip off. They don't frigging know what they are doing no. one, and no. 2 they don't care. I have most likely rebuilt more brakes than anyone at the dealer.

Another major problem is the paint clear coat is peeling off. The Factory should be made to correct these defects with no questions asked. I refuse to drive a vehicle that does not have proper brakes.
