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.

C/K 3500 4WD 8-cyl

I have a 1998 Chevy CK3500 4X4 dually, this truck has 50,000 miles on it and has never been used for towing. While driving down the highway in rainy conditions not only did the windshield wipers stop working, the transfer case locked up, the rear tires locked up and we had to swerve off the road, we thought it was a brake problem at first but it is the transfer case, this almost caused a major accident on the turnpike, this truck has been babied and serviced regularly. The windshield wipers sometimes work now, and we will take apart the transfer case and see what happened with it.
