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

Apr 102003

S-10 Pickup 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles


When the vehicle was turned, the stabilizer bar rubbed the tire, which caused the tire to wear out prematurely. Dealer notified. The consumer noticed a rub on both sides of the stabilizer bar which was most on the left side. Further investigation showed the stabilizer bar was shoved an inch out of it's bracket. There was a hard left pull when the vehicle was driven. The truck was lifted off the ground and the consumer pointed out the rub marks on the stabilizer bar and also showed how the bar had been shoved out of it's holding bracket. The service dealer suggested the problem was a design flaw by showing the consumer another vehicle (same make/model) with the same problem.
