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.

2008 Chevrolet Express Owner Comments

Express 8-cyl

  • 18,956 miles


I am a fleet mechanic for a community college. During a routine safety inspection on a Chevrolet Express 1500 8 passenger van for the community college. I noticed that the brake master cylinder was leaking. I took it to the dealer and the verified my complaint, of course the warranty expired on it around 1 year ago. The total cost parts and labor was around $900 to fix it on a van with around 19,000 miles on it. This leak can lead to brake failure and cause a crash. It can also leak on plastic and other components and cause them to fail as well.
