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

Colorado LS ZQ8 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

my trucks been awesome. Bought with 32,000 and just had normal wear and tear like brakes. still cant figure out why rear drum always sound bad but after 116,000 on it now starting to do funny things like running funny and almost seeming to stall when braking and turning. Think its time to sell. For being first of GM new design i have not alot of complaints. Found out the trucks are all isuzu made so might explain why sucks in the snow being 2 wheel drive. I would love the truck forever if it had the s-10 rearend under it
