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

Feb 282004

Silverado 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,200 miles


While driving my vehicle on the freeway the tailgate dropped open and proceeded to fall off my vehicle. When I went to the dealership, the written estimate I received quoted $1045.48 to repair all the damage. I am thank full to god that it was early in the morning and there was noon behind us and I didn't have a load on the tailgate! it could of been a fatality.

Support cables for my tailgate both broken withen 3 years of purchase of vehicle. I blamed my son of letting it drop but after reading a article in the grand rapids press I realize it is a major defect and G.M. owes me replacment parts and a apology.
