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.

Cracked dash near my air bag provide a big hazard. I have other cracks around my dashboard also, but the thing that scares me the most is the cracks by my airbag. I could lead to pices of sharp plastic flying to my passenger if the air bag ever goes off. Please we need a recall.

ABS does not work, light is on the dash. Airbag lights are on the dash and not sure if they are working, tailgate does not latch closed. Key does not always want to turn and we need to move it back and forth before it will start the vehicle.

I have been having a problem with exterior door handles breaking off. This has happened to me 3 times on my 2007 Chevy Silverado pick up truck. If you need to pull a little hard on the door handle to open the door because it has snow or ice on it (or it is just locked), it breaks off. The handles are made of plastic. My safety concern is this: If I am in an accident and unable to open the door myself, a rescue person may grab the handle a little too hard and it breaks off, thus they will be unable to get me out of the car quickly. I have ask GM if there were any recalls on this and they said no. Like I said I have replaced the handles 3 times and the truck has less than 50000 miles on it.

Silverado 2007 truck cracks just keep appearing in dash in airbag section for no reason. Truck is parked in garage 80 percent of time. If cracks keep appearing, what is going to keep airbag from coming out of dash for no reason" this truck is 6 years old with 62,000 miles on it very clean and the dash looks awful. Have contacted Chevrolet and they say no recalls, please tell me why"
