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

Sep 012005

S-10 Pickup 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 33,800 miles


The contact stated when applying the brakes at a high speed the brakes will chatter. When applying the brakes while approaching a stop sign the brake pedal will go to the floor and it will pulsate. The brakes will not allow the vehicle to come to an abrupt stop, but has extended stopping distance. A recall for other general motor vehicles regarding the ABS system, was issued, but this vehicle was not included in the recall. Upon inspection, it was determined that the rotors needed to be turned. The service dealer turned the rotors, replaced the brake pads and the brake shoes. This remedied the problem. The dealer will have to check the ABS to determine if the speed sensor was the problem. Updated 02/07/06.
