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.

Express 8-cyl

Faulty hinge pins on side doors of 2004 Chevy 3500 express van cause severe binding of hinges. This could cause exit difficulty for child or elderly trying to exit in case of accident or emergency. It is a problem with multiple years and pins have been redesigned. Chevy will only repair at customers expense. This is not from damage or neglect. I have tried to lubricate with no success.
