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.

Steering had excessive play, viring either way, the steering grear box needed to be replace. John L. sullivan sold us the truck in that condition. When questioned about the play in the steering, they said nothing was wrong. However once I lost control of the truck I then knew that there had to be something wrong. So I took it directly to woodard Chevrolet, (the cloest dealership) were they repaired it once the part were available.

This vehicle pulls to the right and wanders. It has had a frontend allignment 3 times, tires rotated, the gearbox has been adjusted and replaced. The dealer which is woking on it (seberger Chevrolet in centralia il). They say that they have 4 or 5 like this and no one knows how to correct it not even Chevrolet. Within 3000 miles this vehicle has been in the shop 4 times. I know longer feel safe driving this vehicle and know no one will do anything about it. Chevrolet keeps giving the dealer the runaround keeping me waiting with a vehicle that, to me is unsafe.
