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.

2003 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #1

Express 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles


My hose that connects to the engine to the radiator has cracked at least three times in the past two and half years, I have ask Chevy on each occasion that I had to purchase it from the dealership, if there is a problem with how the hose is position so close to the exhaust pipe with no support to keep the hose away from this pipe that gives off so much heat, I truly believe this is creating the problem and I'm tired of replacing it and would like to get to the bottom of this.
