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.

1999 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 102011

Silverado LT 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 115,000 miles


The Passenger 3rd door exterior door handle broke making it so that the only way to open the door was by the interior handle. This handle is very difficult to use. We replaced the exterior handle and a little over a week after it to broke. You have to use above average force to get any of the 3rd door handles to work. My uncle has the same truck (different trim pkg) and has the same problem. This leads me to believe it is a defect in manufacturing not in my particular truck. MAJOR hassle when you have to kids and a dog that need to get in and out of the backseat. I've been proud Chevy owner for, well since Ive got my license.
