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 #1

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

Clutch failure, vehicle has been to the dealer three times for the same problem. They have temporarily fixed it. They replaced bearing, flywheel, pressure plate, and the slave cylinder. This was the first time. The second time they replaced the master cylinder. The third time they replaced the hydraulic fluid. This started on January 12, 2005. This usually happened when driving straight for four or more hours. The last time dealer took vehicle to dealer for fourth time, took out the frame, and there was an increase in clutch pedal travel, and pedal became momentarily spongy.
