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.

2002 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

Silverado 8-cyl

I received two new tailgate cable supports from a dealer in arcadia, Florida this past winter. I installed them myself on my 2002 Chevy C2500 hd crew cab pickup. I have reason to believe the new cables are not made from stainless steel as they are supposed to be. This is because a magnet will stick to the cables, just like to old ones. The dealer really had no answer other than the new cables were the ones they were installing on everyone's vehicle that responded to the recall. I know that 203 type stainless steel has a small amount of carbon and will attract a magnet slightly, but I still believe the "new" cables are the same as the old ones. Thank you, gene faulconer.
