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.

The extended cub 3rd door handles continues to break every 6 months. It is made of plastic. I purchased the 1998 S10 in March, 04, in July the handle broke. This same new handle broke was replaced in December, 04. Finally, the 2 new handle broke in August, 05. The break is always in the same area. The dealer has commented that he has numerous complaints to him for this part, but to chev has made no effort to recall or assist in any way. Can I have your review and assistance?

The pickup truck was given to the dealer 2 times already and the interor leakage problem still exists. On the first attempt, the dealer claimed that I left the door open and it was my fault the vehicle leaked. On the second attempt at taking it to the dealer, I sat in their lobby for an hour-and-A-half while they claimed they were fixing the problem. The next day it rained and the vehicle continued to leak. I am contacting the dealer tomorrow for a third attempt at repair.
