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.

2000 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

problem #3

May 152009

S-10 Pickup

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


First seat (driver) broke about 2 years after I bought it, then about a year or so later the other went. And yup, its crystallized metal like pot metal. Just came apart, and I really am not sure if its something that's easy enough to just fix. $200 is quite a bit to spend on something that just fell apart and isnt used on daily basis.

S-10 Pickup LS 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,000 miles

Second time I had ever used the lever and I purchased the truck NEW and I was the only one who had ever driven it. The screw/bolt that held the lever is what broke.

S-10 Pickup 4.6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

Both seat adjusters broke within about a week of each other. You can't just replace the handles, because the metal they attach to is broken. Looking at the pieces, it is highly crystalized like pot metal. You can purchase a new handle and the hardware it attaches to for about $100 per side. The parts guy said that he is constantly yelled at by s-10 owners because they think chevy should cover this since it is so rampant.
