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.

1998 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 122013

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl

  • miles


I almost hit a person crossing the street, I was coming to a slow stop, the brakes started making a boing boing noise, everytime it made the noise the brakes stopping power went away the person crossing the street realised the truck was having problems... I"ve had 3 of this model truck my first was a 97 Tahoe bad breaks I actually got into an accident with that truck rear ended Honda civic, my other one was a 94 Silverado I had to brake hard once the breaks gave way N the pedal was soft after that. My new one, the one I'm actually complaning about is a 98 Silverado 3500 with defective brakes this is a poor design by GM motors this has to be recalled and repaired. I do know someone who crashed his 2 door Blazer into a water tanker he brake hard N the brakes gave out 88-98 GM trucks and SUV's have deeeeeeefective brakes 3/3 I've had problems with this is not right.
