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 would like to alert you to a design flaw causing a very serious safety issue with the Chevy Colorado trucks. On the pre-dawn morning of May 9, 2013, I was driving my 15 miles to work when I began smelling a very strong raw gasoline odor in the cab. I pulled off the road and found gasoline dripping heavily between the cab and bed of the truck. I immediately shut down the truck and left it where it was. Upon later examination, I found where the pressurized plastic fuel line had ruptured. The rupture was on the top of the plastic fuel line toward the front of the gas tank. Over time, the plastic fuel line was rubbing against the top bed of the truck whenever the truck went over a bump. I have searched the internet and found other Chevy Colorado truck situations like this, some causing vehicle fires and personal burn injuries.

My truck often times fails to start. After 10 minutes the truck may or may not start. The longest I have had to wait was 30 minutes at night before it has started. My truck stopped on me in the middle of traffic and did not restart. I am a single parent with a child and have been stranded several times. This is the worse vehicle I have ever owned.
