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.

I own a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado ls. Inexplicably and randomly, it shifts itself into 4WD high. Often this is while making a right hand turn. Chevrolet stopped servicing my vehicle, telling me there was no cure for this problem. It has happened at high speeds on the highway as well. The most recent date this happened was yesterday while I was turning into my post office. This has been a constant problem since the recorded mileage was 2,109. Records will show the truck was in for service by GM at least 15 times. Incidentally, this is a replacement truck for a 2005 Colorado that had precisely the same problem. Before the dealer was shut down by GM, the service manager told me that GM detroit had told him not to service the vehicle for this problem any longer as GM had no cure for it.
