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.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments (Page 3 of 3)

« Read the previous 20 complaints

problem #1

Feb 212007

(reported on)

Silverado 1500 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Fuel gauge will drop to show empty when the tank is not. Due to busy schedule, haven't been able to get appt to fix but upon talking to another Chevy Silverado owner he too is having the same problem. Very inconvenient to have to always remember how many miles I have driven since my last fill up. I was hoping that other owners might have the same problem so that a possible recall can be issued.
