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

Sep 162013

Colorado 4WD 5-cyl

  • 40,000 miles


Traveling on a dark cold night when vehicle coded service engine ABS and traction control came on we had no headlights brakes lights no wipers no heat or air and unable to unlock doors. We were fortunate that we git off the side if road before any collison. We were unable to get anything to come back on for a few minutes. We actually had to shut off vehicle and restart that worked until we could get home. No one cm tell us what is wrong with the truck. Now it is not running and unable to drive it. Not very pleased with this truck. We bought it new in 2009. I feel that this is a problem GM should have to fix. I still can't find a recall for this vehicle.
