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

Sep 162005

Silverado 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles


The locking rear axle on my Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd does not release when entering a turn or intersection from a stop, causing the vehicle to continue forward and fight steering in the proper direction. I have had several near head on collisions with opposing traffic upon finally completing the turn. Chevrolet inspected the rear axle and installed a lubricant additive at approximately 10000 miles but the problem still exists. I have spoken with other owners of the same make, model, and year vehicle who have similar problems.
