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.

rusty fuel lines

While replacing the rusted out oil cooler lines, I noticed the fuel lines are severely rusted as well, but not leaking yet. These lines should never, ever, rust out!

What kind of steel is used in these crappy lines anyway?

I plan on installing stainless steel lines to replace the junk GM used!

Don't expect me to ever buy a new Chevy truck again, unless the brake, fuel, and transmission lines are made out of quality stainless steel!!

This is totally unacceptable GM!!
