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.

Silverado 6-cyl

  • 2,500 miles
#1. vehicle accelerates when letting off gas, even while going uphill the vehicle will accelerate. You can go up a steep hill without touching the gas. Brought the vehicle to the dealership they replaced, the throttle body, gas pedal assembly. They reinstalled the original parts and told us that this was normal. We drove other 2011 Chevy Silverado's which did not do the same thing. The dealership told us that all the 2011 Chevy Silverado's accelerate on their own. #2. there is a clunking noise from the rear when driving over bumps. The dealership said this is normal backlash, and did not do anything.
