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.

problem #3

  • 72,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. While driving approximately 35 mph the brake warning light illuminated. The contact depressed the brake pedal but the vehicle would not respond. The contact was able to park the vehicle and upon exiting, noticed oil leaking from under the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnostic testing where the technician advised the contact that the brake lines were corroded and would have to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 72,000.

Testing new front brakes and rear brake lines ruptured. Limped home, parked truck called GM. Never had this issue in the past. GM seems not very concerned and may get back to me. I feel fortunate to have escaped serious injury to my family and self. I think that it is unconscionable for GM to use inferior products and play russian roulette with our safety. Please utilize this information to raise the safety standards by which these companies have compromised for the sake of their profit margins. When I notified GM, my call was put through to someone([xxx]) in the philippines. Why would they care about us? american companies have sold out and farmed out their goods and services.
