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.

Rear axle seals let go as I was towing a skidsteer loader. luckily I was almost home, dropped the equipment off, and took it to the dealer down the street, They had it for about 2 days. gave me rental truck in the mean time, so it wasn't too bad. Im up to 140K now and haven't had a problem since on this particular complaint.

Silverado

the axle started leaking at 18000 miles. i took it in and they fixed it under warranty. now at 50000 miles its leaking again and they refuse to fix it again. i dont feel axles should be leaking with only 50000 miles especially since it was repaired once. i have always been a ford man and this is my first chevy. i have had several problems with this truck and the dealer and will never buy another. i have a business and own 27 trucks and thankfully they are all ford and will stay that way. i have recently replace one truck with another ford.
