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.

2004 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

I have a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado extended cab that continues to experience intermittent electrical problems. The airbag sensor light comes on unexpectedly, the fan blower intermittently stops working on settings 1-3, and the front turn signal bulbs go out every 5000-6000 miles. I can usually brush the components under the glove compartment to get the blower working, and the airbag sensor usual goes out after a week or so.

On 10/15/2004, I began to turn the ignition key of my 2004 Chevrolet Colorado automobile. The vehicle was parked. Just as I turned the ignition, the steering wheel airbag inflated. The steering wheel airbag inflated for no reason. The vehicle is still under warranty since I have only owned the vehicle several weeks. The manufacturer will be replacing the airbag under warranty. The airbag inflation did not result in serious injury. The only injury was a rug burn like feeling to the face and a sore left eye and a sore left hand. Neither appear to be serious.
