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

Mar 012009

Silverado LT 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,000 miles

My drivers side window stopped working for the second time. My passenger side window stopped working one time. The left and right windows were covered under warranty the first time. At 103K the drivers window is way out of warranty and the repair will be on me.

I really like the vehicle but from what I have read on the GM truck products in this era the design of the lifting mechanism is crappy.

I had just bought the truck about 6 months before new. All of a sudden my window doesn't want to go back up. Took it back to the dealer and they replaced the windows electric motor. Haven't had a problem with it since.
