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.

Noticed that cruise control did not work while driving. Took vehicle to auto shop to have problem fixed, was told brake lights remained on even when brakes were not being applied (did not remain on when ignition was off), had the brake light switch replaced and problem was fixed. A few months later, a fellow drive told me that my brake lights were staying on while driving and then I noticed that the cruise control was not working again. Took back to auto shop, was told that the brake light switch was ok. Took vehicle to GM dealership and was told that the body control module needs to be replaced. I did some research and noticed that GM had a recall in May 2014 for passenger cars with similar problems.

Silverado

  • 8,900 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado. The contact was traveling 30 mph on a two lane road when the accelerator pedal was engaged, when the gas pedal was released the vehicle continued to accelerate. The speed increased up to 80 mph before the vehicle would stop. The accelerator pedal appeared to be stuck causing the contact to turn the vehicle off; however, the vehicle continued to accelerate. The contact turned the vehicle back on and off again before it began coasting to a stop. The contact took the vehicle into the dealer and was told that they were unable to diagnose the failure. When the contact drove the vehicle home, the ABS light came on. The failure and current mileages were 8900.
