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.

2015 Chevrolet Colorado Owner Comments

I recently purchased a new/ never titled/ demo 2015 Chevrolet Colorado with luxury option package. Options included projector-type headlights. Headlights shine a straight horizontal beam of light about 40 inches off the roadway. Light below/ darkness above. The first time I drove at night I found the headlights totally inadequate! this is a safety issue. Returned to the dealer twice for readjustment with no improvement. Talked to the service manager which talked to the district manager. I asked for the lights to be replaced with the reflector type headlights which come on the base truck. They said the projector type headlights meet Chevrolet specs and no change could be made. The dealer offered to change the headlights for about $1000, my money! I called Chevrolet corporate and they told me the same answer- the lights meet Chevrolet specs and the inquiry is over. I am filing this report as a safety concern. I can not drive this vehicle safely after dark. All highways are not flat. The roadway disappears driving into inclines, driving around corners, and roadside signage is difficult to read. It's a roller coaster ride. Dealer will do nothing on its own. All changes must be made through Chevrolet proper. Other owners have complained but few can be found on the internet. Please include this as a complaint against projection-type headlights on this vehicle. Chevrolet complaint #8-216-9453040.

The 2015 Colorado has an electrical/lighting problem. While the lighting is not a big issue, the fact that it may indicate a more serious electrical problem is. When entering the truck, the cargo light comes on, as it is supposed to, but when exiting the truck, the reverse lights come on instead of the cargo light. I noticed this with our fleet vehicle, and have since heard from many owners who have the same problem.
