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.

2002 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

problem #1

May 192004

S-10 Pickup 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 7,580 miles


-brakes failed to stop vehicle (2002 cherolet S10 pickup) while traveling at low speed (20-35 mph). Brake pedal went to the floor at least once, possibly more, as I tried to get the brakes to engage. Brakes finally caught but on the right side only for the vehicle jerked to the right before it came to a stop. Vehicle, which is still under warrenty, was towed to dealer and no defects or problems were found. Dealer stated that there is nothing they can do to since they cannot replicate problem.
