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

problem #1

Sep 202006

Colorado 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles


I had new tires installed on my truck. The original tires seemed to wear unevenly on the inside tread. I had my alignment checked and it was good. I have my tires rotated every 6000 miles. The technician that inspected my vehicle said that the tie rods were worn out. He said that was the third Colorado that he had seen in the last week with worn tie rods. He said that this seemed unusual to him that they would wear so fast. I have been contemplating whether to pay for the repair or see if a recall is issued on this vehicle. Tie rods should not wear out at 40000 miles.
