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.

I went to slow to make turn and brakes went to the floor suddenly so I used emergency brake to stop. I believe all lines will need to be replaced as other look as rusty. Rust has been an issue for last 2 years with rotors needing replace then bearings in front rusted and anti-lock brake light would come on and pedal would surge. This is the worse Chevy truck I ever bought as even seeing rust already in lower panels and entire frame. Looks bad for only 53,474 miles.

New 2005 Silverado 2500 hd 6.0L, random, metal popping, cracking noises while in motion, and parked. Sounds like small rocks hitting the sheet metal body. Sounds are not isolated to one area on truck, come from all over, both sides. Started almost immediately after purchase. Dealer says it is related to "heat shields" and a service bulletin is published by GM. I am supposed to get a recall notice within 30 days or so. I cannot find a recall notice/service bulletin for this in anyone's records.
