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.

2000 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 152014

C/K 1500 LS 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 180,000 miles


I bought it with 120,000 miles. I had it for about 4 years, around that time I had 180,000 miles on it. I had the brake line fail on me when I was driving. I later found out it rotted out so we replaced that. Not too long after the other ones started rotting out. This happened to be on the road, driving. I have also heard from other people the Chevy 1500 brake lines are cheap material. I believe they are cheap, it's something Chevy should address before someone gets killed. I had to replace all lines, It would have cost more than $100 if I didn't do it myself. They should be rerouted as well. They are set on top of the frame where in winter the salt sits on them and rusts them out. I currently have 201,000 with the new brake lines, and none shown failure yet.

I know other Chevy owners have also had this problem. It really should be recalled, it's dangerous, and someone could get killed. Too bad Chevy won't admit their brake lines are cheaper material, and have a recall.
