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

Oct 262005

Silverado 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles


The contact stated vehicle would not go into park. He thought he had put the car into park but when he began to exit the vehicle it started moving. When he looked at the shift indicator it was in reverse. He checked to see if there was something lodged in the column shift. The contact said he did not find anything lodged in the column shift. At this point the vehicle would only go into reverse. But, yesterday when he was inspecting the vehicle noticed it would only go into first and second gears. The vehicle has not been inspected by a dealer to determine the cause of the problem.
