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.

2001 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 092005

S-10 Pickup

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


: the contact stated while driving 15 mph on normal road conditions, smoke was noticed inside the vehicle cabin. No warning lights alerted the contact. The vehicle was taken to the dealership who determined the exhaust manifold gasket needed to be replaced. The same problem recurred, and required a second replacement. The vehicle had to be taken to the dealership to replace the gasket a third time. The problem was very sensitive because the smoke entered through the ventilation to the cabin at low speeds and when the vehicle was immobile at stop sign. The manufacturer was contacted who indicated the vehicle was out of warranty, and provided no further assistance.
