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 #2

Apr 132015

Colorado 4WD 4-cyl

  • 111,000 miles


I was slowing down at an intersection to make a right hand turn. As I made the turn, my engine died. I lost power steering, and my vehicle was extremely difficult to control. I nearly hit another car. My engine restarted immediately after I placed the truck in park. The next day, my truck died again while slowing to enter an intersection. I immediately took it to a mechanic, who replaced the throttle body. On the way home, it died while make a right hand turn. This appears to be a common failing with the Chevrolet Colorado, and is very dangerous as it causes a loss of power steering.

I am the owner of the Chevy Colorado ( 10237336 ) a correction needs to be made on the report you have listed. The problem has happened several times ( at least 20 ) not once, the problem started at 12 K miles and continues. Also, the ABS failed at 20 K miles, the fan clutch burnt up, the A/C quit, all the wiring was burned, the list goes on. I still have 100 miles left on my warranty.... any suggestions ?
