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.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 012008

Silverado 4.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


Notice fluid leaking under vehicle. Brought to dealership and they said there was a hole in the transfer case. Also needed new front axle seals. Total bill- $1580

To date I have replaced the steering gear, steering shaft, power window motor on passengers side, rear brakes, plus the transfer case and front axle seals. The heater control has also gone crazy and now only the high speeds work. I also hear a loud clunking noise when I let off the gas and then accelerate at low speeds. I have replaced headlight and taillight bulbs numerous times and they keep burning out. This is my second Chevy product with numerous issues. I can understand a couple of issues, but not to this extent. I take car of my vehicle, do not beat on it, and this is what I get in return. I doubt I will buy another Chevy product.
