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

Nov 112003

Silverado 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,368 miles


Purchased a new 2004 Chevrolet Silverado Z71. The four wheel drive select panel failed. Returned the vehicle to sandy sansing Chevrolet pensacola, Florida dealer for repair. The service manager stated Chevrolet could not fix the problem for two to five months because the problem is a computer software defect. Upon further research the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado has the same problem. The research and development at Chevrolet knew there computer software had a defect when making this vehicle was made available for the consumer. Chevrolet should replace these defective vehicles.
