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.

2007 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 182008


  • 23,700 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado. The contact stated that his vehicle was experiencing ongoing failures with the vehicle. There was a hard vibration in the engine and brake failure. As a result, the vehicle was placed in the repair shop for 18 days. There was also uneven tread on both front tires. At that time, the vehicle was aligned and the tires were rotated. The vehicle has been repaired at least seven times; however, the failures persist. The contact feels that the failures are safety hazards that could cause a crash. The current and failure mileages were 23,700.

Colorado 5-cyl

  • 27,000 miles
2006 Chevy Colorado 4 door. 5 cylinder. 4 times the truck would not start after sitting in a parking lot or garage for a day or 2 hour before using. One time I was in a dangerous part of town shopping, when I returned to the truck, the truck would not start. I had to go through some dangerous streets to a pay phone. Finally after 40 minutes of waiting for a tow truck, I tried it and it started.

Colorado 4WD 5-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,796 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado. While driving 70 mph with the cruise control activated, the engine shut off completely. The dealer could not find any failure. A week later, the vehicle lost power again and was returned to the dealer. The dealer placed a recorder in the vehicle. The vehicle lost power twice afterwards and the recorder was able to receive two snapshots of the system. The dealers then acknowledged the failure. From the data that was received, the vehicle then began to shut off while the cruise control was deactivated with the engine running. The contact notified the state attorney general's office to file a lemon law claim. He was advised to call NHTSA. Presently, the vehicle has been at the dealer for over two weeks. The failure mileage was 6,796 and current mileage was 12,647. Updated
