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.

2003 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup Owner Comments

problem #1

S-10 Pickup

  • 48,000 miles


Bought this vehicle brand new in 2003. In November 2005 a piece inside the transmission broke out and shot a hole through the transmission casing. Since we were over the 36,000 miles from the original warranty, we had to submit a claim to our WYNNS extended warranty. WYNNS claimed that we were the cause of this happening and that they would cover everything but the transmission casing ($1500) part. So we ending up paying $1500 and the warranty company only paid $500. At the moment we can not get anyone at Chevrolet to assist us. Chevrolet sold us this terrible warranty and then they don't want to stand behind what they sell. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!
