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 #1

May 082007

Colorado 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 187 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado. A few days after the vehicle was purchased, the contact noticed that the gear would not shift into reverse. She went to the dealer and had the vehicle inspected. The mechanic informed the contact to shove the clutch in to shift the gear in reverse. She has to place the shift in every single gear before she can finally place it in reverse. She called the dealer and was given a paper stating that the vehicle was made to perform in that manner. The failure mileage was 187 and current mileage was 5,030. Updated 09/18/07
