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 #2

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,000 miles


will not start every time. I turn it off, go back to it and it will not start. I have seen several complaints about this, but no solution. I have take it to the dealership and they cannot find the reason because it will not do when they check it. It is happening everyday now and I am really frustrated with it. Please help.

Colorado 2.8L 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 137,000 miles

i have had 2 years of my chevy colorado of not wanting to start and 7/18/2014 it left me and my disabled wife sitting in the parking lot of the county fair. had to have it towed home and then borrow a company vehicle to get back and forth to work. i do not know the extent of the bill yet because i still do not have it back. they are having to have the ECM reprogrammed and then god knows what else. might even have to take out a loan to pay the bill. i really think they should compensate me back what i have ot put into it.
