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

Jan 012007

Silverado Texas Ed 4.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


occasionally when i pull out of a parking lot and go to accelerate onto a frontage road i feel the truck will studder as it shifts from first to second gear.. it feels like 3 of 4 pulses...

it doesn't do it every time, and it seems to be more often when there isnt a great load on it.. if i'm accelerating hard i've never felt it... this started from day one of owning the truck and i have taken it in a couple times complaining about it, and they said that they checked it, drove it, and couldn't find anything...
