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.

Silverado Z71 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

The side molding on every Chevy Silverado truck that I have ever seen in a champagne/tan color, including mine, looks horrible. There were approximately 30,000 - 40,000 miles on the truck when it started changing colors. The chrome part looks rusty and the painted part on the molding is this faded, greenish color. It makes a really nice truck look awful! I was told that I could get it painted for about $200 or purchase new moldings which I cannot find anywhere unless I get another nice green one at a junk yard. This should have been recalled through Chevy!
