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.

2004 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 212009


  • 50,000 miles


The brakes on my 2004 Chevy Express 3500 activate without warning, stopping the vehicle in traffic. A warning light indicated a failure of the stability control system. Fault code C0196 was recorded. My dealer replaced the electronic brake control module, but the problem continues to occur. I was almost rear-ended when the vehicle stopped without warning in traffic.
