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 have a 2004 Chevy Colorado crew cab 4X4 with the Z71 off road package. I ran over a stick about 3/4" to 1-1/2" in dia. And it broke the fuel line (that is pvc not metal). I think GM should look at this more closely as it is a major hazard on the road. I notified GM on Monday 12-01-2008 and they said that, could not have happened. Well it did happen and if it happened to me I am sure it has before and will happen again. Please let me know how I should proceed with this major road safety hazard. Thank you, randy schmidt

2004 Colorado fuel filter was replaced at 22,300. The fuel connector came loose cause fuel to spill out. A year and some months later, the consumer discovered fuel leaking profusely from the fuel filter connector (between the filter and the engine). The consumer snapped the connector back in to place.

There is a problem with the fabrication. The choke control is broken. Chevrolet is not offering any help. I N the morning, when he started the vehicle, he went back into the house, came back, and the vehicle was burning. Contact believes the problem started in the engine. The vehicle is at the dealership now.
