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

problem #1

Aug 012007

Silverado 2500HD 6.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


The transfercase on my 2500HD decided on day for the oil pump inside to seize up while going down the freeway at 70mph, well, when it seized, it punched a hole in the side of the casing, letting all the oil out causing every component to roach itself to nothing. I contacted a local transmission dealership, they had to search around for a used one for me since a new one was over $3K. I bought this truck brand new, never beat it, I plow, but take extreme care of it, thats why I bought a HD. I still have the truck. but have had a bunch of little but costly problems.
