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.

2005 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 012010


  • 53,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Express 1500. The contact was traveling 25 mph when the brakes were applied and they would not respond. The contact was forced through a red traffic light and attempted to shift into a lower gear. The vehicle did not stop until driving over a curve and coming to a stop. The vehicle was inspected by a mechanic where it was discovered that one of the hoses of the master cylinder failed. The mechanic advised that there were two hoses that were running together abnormally and the friction caused the hose to collapse. The failure and current mileage was 53,000.
