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.

Brakes lock and grind when the truck is stopped at slow speeds. Steering wheel turns somewhat to one side when this happens. Happens mostly in wet weather but also happens in dry weather. Have taken it to the Chevrolet dealership numerous times and they say nothing is wrong.

The brakes (with ABS) lock up, mostly when it's wet out, but will also do it when dry. The dealer replaced the ABS computer, and has made adjustments, but it still does it.

Rattling noise that appears to be coming from the bed or the frame. Noise is mostly heard in cooler temps/lightly heard when temp reach above 85 degrees//when putting foot on brake; it feels like the brake has some resistance and truck doesn't want to stop.
