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.

Silverado Z71 5.3L

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

FIRST TIME IT WAS THE FRONT LEFT BRAKE LINE AND I DROVE INT A DITCH TO AVOID AN ACCIDENT. THIS TIME THE RIGHT BRAKE LINE BLEW OUT AND I HIT THE CORNER OF MY GARAGE. I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE DOLLAR AMOUNT WILL BE TO REPAIR EVERYTHING, BUT AT LEAST THERE WAS NO LOSS OF LIFE OR BODILY INJURY EITHER TIME. I OWN 4 DIFFERENT CHEVERLOT'S AT THIS TIME, I WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER AND WILL GET RID OF WHAT I HAVE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I WILL NEVER OWN ANOTHER ONE, I WILL VOICE MY CONCERNS TO EVERYONE I MEET AND TALK TO.

Continue to have rust issues with this vehicle including replacing rotors, differential cover, and other frame/running gear components. must have used some very cheap steel for parts manufacturing. My next truck will not be a GM product.
