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.

This is just another electrical problem in a string of them for this POS Chevy made in Canada. I have no good things to say about this truck other than the personal modifications that I have made on this vehicle to improve the suspension... All I can say is, I wish I had bought a Ford. I will certainly never buy a Chevy or GM product again.

Help.... Truck won't start. It just turns over great but won't fire. Happened after I filled up with gas. It started sputtering and missing and then it died. I was idleing fine and would just cut out under throttle but now it just won't start. Please help me.
