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.

problem #1

Sep 012003

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • 29,000 miles
Both wheel bearings on the front axle failed on our 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd 4X4 4-door pickup. It has 39,000 miles and has been used in light duty situations only (primarily highway driving with light towing). A large squeak developed over a three week period when turning right corners. Our local mechanic found that both front wheels, especially the drivers side, were close to falling off the truck. Even though it was out of warranty, the local dealer replaced both failed mechanisims without question with in stock parts. A little odd that they would have multiple sets of front hub assemblies in stock on last year's model, don't you think?
