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 #2

Aug 072009

Silverado 2500 6.0L V8

  • Manual transmission
  • 58,000 miles

Brake lines under NO circumstance should fail in 10 years. I had vehicles that were 30+ years old that still had factory brakelines on them. GM dropped the ball and the Federal Government is helping them.....because if they (GM) fails so does the Obama administration that bailed them out. So the Government will male Toyota recall millions but not GM? Go figure...Toyota was just about to take over the largest US sales crown from GM....Suspicious huh?

Silverado 1500 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 101,647 miles

This truck is starting to be a money pit. The ABS sensors went bad and weren't covered by a recall that i read about. (cost of repair $1548..00) and now the brake line rupture. After looking at the lines all of the lines have a heavy presence of rust on them.
