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.

2000 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

(reported on)

Silverado LS 5.3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,145 miles


I had a noise from the steering column. Also started to get sloppy steering. No matter which way I turn it did it. Cold or hot weather, it didn't matter. Then the steering started to get sloppy when driving straight forward. Took it to the dealer and they reported that the intermediate steering shaft was worn out. It was fixed for about $150. I did some checking and GM knows about this problem. The dealer even commented they have a high failure rate and see a lot of them come in. GMs' remedy was to redesign the whole shaft. Or what the dealer called a retrofit.
