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

Jan 232007

(reported on)

Silverado LS 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,521 miles


My 2004 chevy silverado speedometer began to malfunction after 49, 000 miles. it would occasionally work but now it has quit working altogether. I have to guess my speed using the tachometer.

This can't be acceptable by the national highway traffic safety administration. I have complained to them but have not heard anything. I have also complained to chevy's email address and they advised there is no recall. I have visited numerous websites and observed complaints nationwide for similar problems on various gm/chevrolet vehicles.

Why is there no recall on such an obvious manufacturers problem?

Maybe if more people contact chevrolet/gm and nhtsa there will be a recall.
