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.

2006 Chevrolet SSR Owner Comments

problem #1

SSR 8-cyl

  • 100,000 miles


Put the truck in reverse and the transmission cable broke. It is plastic and the catalytic converter heats the plastic and cracks it. The underhood fuse block went while driving. The truck shut off on me while I was driving and would not restart. The dealer said this is a big issue with this truck. I had to spend 600 dollars for a new box. My ABS pump also went dealer said this is because of the heat from the catalytic converter and that this is a big issue on this truck also. Also the running boards on the truck were chrome. They have peeled and started to flake. The dealer said it looks like water got in them and caused it to do that and that it was another problem on this truck. It was hit and miss on some of them.
