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.

problem #1

Silverado 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
There are irregularities in speedometer. Speedometer reads faster than actual timed speed, this causes fuel mileage to be false and consumer states it gets the manufacturer out of warranty faster. When ABS are applied, if the rear wheels encounter a bump, the rear brakes stay out of action putting all braking on front wheels.
