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.

1998 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 102010

Express 8-cyl

  • 105,000 miles


Hydraulic brake lines failed while in a parking lot. Driving about 20 mph, applied the brakes and pedal went to the floor. Held brake pedal to the floor and the vehicle eventually stopped. Had vehicle towed to a local repair shop and mechanic stated steel brake line to left front wheel had broken due to corrosion. I had all steel brake lines replaced. Several other lines were also badly corroded.
