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.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 012006

Colorado 4WD 5-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 8,000 miles


: the contact stated when cresting a hill the cruise control will over accelerate by 3 to 4 mph. The momentum causes the accelerator to disengage, when it re -engages the vehicle accelerates as much as 15 mph more than the set speed. The hill does not have to have a decline for the acceleration. The owner's manual states this could happen and the brake should be applied after cresting the hill. The dealership was able to duplicate the problem and determined it is an anomaly in the programming of the computer. Other model year vehicles were driven and the dealership determined it happened with those vehicles. The brakes slow the vehicle sometimes, but the cruise control must be deactivated to completely remedy the problem. Updated 02/07/06.

Re: NHTSA action number : PE05065 brake light switch was replaced on my 2005 Chevy Colorado after I reported, to the dealership, that none of the brake lights worked and the cruise control would not activate.
