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.

Silverado 4WD

Left taillight circuit board failure during a long trip made for hazardous driving. GM states that this is a common occurence. Weak component. Weak components should have safety recalls due to safety and poor design. GM customer service contacted. Since vehicle had 41,000 miles, they felt no responsibility.
