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.

S-10 Pickup Xtreme 4.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 167,000 miles


I have had my Xtreme for four years and since the day I got the ground effects on it have been utter sh*t. They break over nothing, the paint doesnt stay if you get it repainted, and if you take them off it looks horrible and you can deffinately tell something is missing. My main issue is the front piece that attaches to the bumper, not really the side skirts or fender trim (though they aren't great either). I tried fixing the large crack in the very front by using a fiberglass repair kit made by Bondo and painted it but that fell through after a short while. Then I was crossing the bridge on my way to work one night and hit a cat which in turn took out the entire right half of it. You would have thought I hit a damn mountain lion. So now I have taken it off and it looks naked.
