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.

Both tailgate cables corroded from the inside out, I was on the tailgate when it decided to give way. To replace the cables you have to replace two silly metal pieces, and together the 2 cables cost $180 (CAD + tax) there have to be other stronger non-rusting materials they could use, not to mention the fact that other trucks the cables can be easily removed without the stupid metal pieces. WHAT WAS GM THINKING!!!
