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.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #3

Mar 162011

Silverado Z71 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,000 miles


I know there are plenty of silverado owners who are experiencing the same thing with instrument clusters screwing up. I was out of the country when this occurred and I could not get the truck to the dealership. When I returned to the States my truck had over 70,000 miles on it and I was told by the chevy dealer that they would not cover the problem if the truck had over 70,000 miles. Now my tachometer has also gone bad!!!

Silverado 4.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,450 miles

This seems to be a problem with the way the Chey company. The dash panel is defected and they need to be held responsible for the problem even if the warranty is out.
