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.

problem #2

Jul 252008

S-10 Pickup LS 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,000 miles


I was very lucky. I had just gotten back from a vacation in the Ozark Mountains and my brakes went out a mile from the dealership. They fixed them then and there and of course I paid then and there.

problem #1

Jun 282006

S-10 Pickup LS 4.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

Tried to stop at a stoplight and the brake pedal went straight to the floor, I hit the parking brake to stop before sailing through the intersection. Drove across the street using the parking brake to stop. Once I got into a parking lot to inspect, saw the brake cable had been worn straight through. I contacted Chevy, who, to their credit responded immediately, it was the dealership who I had issues with, they kept coming up with excuses as to why it was my fault (none of them were valid, but it worked, I gave up fighting with them and fixed it myself for the cost of the part because I needed that truck and the part was cheap).
