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.

2009 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 042016


  • 58,289 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Colorado. While driving approximately 60 mph, the vehicle lost power and the instrument panel dimmed. The ABS and brake warning indicators illuminated. Later, the contact was unable to unlock the doors. The contact jiggled the key for a while to unlock the door. Also, it took several attempts to start the ignition. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and advised the contact to take the vehicle to a local dealer, who was unable to duplicate the failures. The failures recurred and the vehicle was taken back to the dealer. The technician diagnosed there was a loose ground harness connector at the front passenger side inner fender, below the air filter box. The dealer cleaned and tightened the ground harness connector cable. The failures recurred after six weeks. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 58,289.
