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.

I was involved in a rear impact crash due to the brake lights failing to illuminate. I had the brake lamps switch of my 2007 Chevrolet Colorado extended cab replaced per the manufacturer recall that was issued in 2010. However, the replacement that the dealership installed failed, causing the driver behind me to be unaware of my intention to stop, which caused that driver to crash in to the rear end of my vehicle. This issue was supposed to be corrected by the recall, but GM is obviously still using faulty parts. My accident did not result in injury or fatality, but other drivers may not be so lucky.

I got a recall notice for my truck, the brake lights won't work in the taillight system. The brake light above the back window works. When I called about this I was told the recall was over my vehicle was not one of the recalled vehicles, all my other lights work it is only my brake lights that don't work. I feel like this is part of the recall. What should I do. They say Arkansas is not part of the recall.

Have a 2007 Colorado and noticed when replacing a burnt bulb that my taillights would not come on everytime I pressed the brake petal. Searched online, found the recall, called my local Chevy dealer. They told me to bring it in and they would fix it. Dropped my truck off, they called me 2 hours later, informing me the work was done, but was not covered under any recall and owed them 70+ dollars. I brought a copy of the recall in and still was informed that no search recall had been issued. Anyone taking their vehicle in for this issue needs to know that GMC is not fixing for free of charge.

On my 2007 Chevrolet Colorado, the headlamps, brake lights, reverse lights, and fuses will burn out at random. In roughly 6 week time, the dealership replaced 5 to 6 bulbs. I brought my vehicle to the dealership 4 times before I contacted Chevrolet and they stated their is a underlying problem that is causing all these incident and that the engineers are working on it. They could not tell me when the problem be resolved. All they advised me is too keep contact with the dealership for updates. This problem is disabling my break lights, running lamps, headlamps every 5-6 days. I obtained a GM engineering bulletin document id:1980024 (assuming not supposed to be leaked to the public) which states they have been aware of the problem since at least June 4, 2007 and there still are not any resolutions. When I addressed the legal issues (violating laws about vehicle equipment) and potential accidents (due to decreased visibility of my vehicle due to inoperative lights), they replied that they do not deal with "what if" scenarios. I have severely limited my driving at night, and the amount of service department trips are causing significant financial hardships due to missed work.

On several occasions the right headlamp has blown out. We have four 2007 Colorados in our fleet and all have the same problem. These vehicles only have approximately 20,000 to 30,000 miles on them and the headlamps have been replaced four to five times in each vehicle.
