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 #3

S-10 Pickup

  • Manual transmission
  • 25,000 miles


The spare tire which is mounted underneath the bed fell off. Two of them were lost. This could have been very dangerous for somebody else.

problem #2

S-10 Pickup 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,100 miles
The spare tire (donut) on my 2001 Chevrolet S-10 pickup, has a 3/8 inch gouge in the sidewall, caused by the way the tire is secured to the undercarriage of the truck. When the cable that secures the tire to the frame is tightened so the tire is secure, it drives the tire into the frame where it wears a groove into the sidewall. I am reluctant to use the tire, as it looks like it would not perform as required.
