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.

2010 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 022015


  • 36,965 miles


Vehicle was in an enclosed space (garage) and there was a fuel smell. Upon inspection under the vehicle, there was a steady, but not flowing drip. The liquid was found out to be gasoline, so a call was made to the dealership. Dealership said they could service the vehicle on the day of the incident, June 2, 2015. The vehicle was brought into the dealership where I was given a rental to drive until the vehicle was repaired. The next day, dealership called and said vehicle was ready to pick up. When the vehicle was started at the dealership, it hesitated and did not start. The vehicle was attempted to start again, however, this time, fuel was leaking heavily from underneath. The dealer was notified of the spilled gasoline, and they kept it overnight to repair again. A few days later, dealership called and said the vehicle was ready for pick up. The date now is June 6, 2015. Upon starting the vehicle, it seemed to start smoothly, with no leaks or problems noted. There had been no problems with leaks or smells or drips until one week later, June 13, 2015. On the way home from work, in an employee parking lot, the vehicle was attempted to start, it delayed, did not start, and fuel was leaking from the bottom extremely heavily. Approximate area of fuel on the ground at this time was 16"X12" with a small puddle. The keys were taken out of the ignition and were never re-inserted until the tow truck came to Transport it back to the dealership. Currently awaiting the diagnosis and repairs from dealership.
