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 Kodiak Owner Comments

problem #1

May 112006

Kodiak 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,631 miles


Brake warning light for service brakes came on. Soft brake pedal. Further investigation revealed loss of brake fluid and brake fluid sprayed all over left front wheel, chassis, and frame. Outside brake line from the brake pressure modulator had a hole leaking brake fluid. Cause of worn brake line was from the power steering hose coming from the hydraulic pump to the inlet side of the steering gear box. The power steering hose was rubbing against the brake line. Power steering hose was replaced and brake line repaired. Defective brake line is available for inspection.
