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.

I was returning home and started to stop a T intersection. The pedal went to the floor and truck slowed down, but did not stop. I went thru the stop intersection and a small dirt bank stopped the truck. Wow, what a rush.

I hauled the truck to Voss Chevrolet and was quoted a price from $1200.00 to $1800.00 to repair. So I returned home with the truck and it is sitting in the driveway. When the weather is better, I will repair the truck myself. I had a 1998 C2500 and it failed in 2007 with the brake line issues. I repaired it myself and sold the truck in 2010.

I now own a 2011 K2500HD and I love that truck, but if the lines rust on this truck, I will seek legal action. GM has a definite problem with the brake lines. Maybe when someone is killed or injured they will wake up, just like the key switch issue that GM is trying to resolve.
