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.

2006 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 152006

Colorado 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 350 miles


The passenger door on the Colorado (without electric locks) does not have a key lock to open the door. Chevrolet says this was decided by a Focus group and does not have a kit to rectify this problem. The only entrance to the locked vehicle is through the driver's door. A case number is furnished and Chevrolet refers to the dealer who does not have a kit as of this date.

: the contact stated the passenger side door does not have a keyed lock. The key fob must be used to gain entry. The manufacturer determined this is how the vehicle was manufactured.
