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 #3

May 052006

S-10 Pickup 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Battery leaked battery acid to the point that the post completely detached itself from the battery unit. When explained to dealership was told that they see this problem very frequently with these vehicles. This left me stranded with no power. If I would have been actually driving when the cable disconnected it could have caused serious problems.
