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 8-cyl

When you try to accelerate, the truck does not respond. The truck acceleration feels like their is a flat spot in the acceleration. This is very dangerous. Several of my family members have almost gotten in terrible T-bone accidents due to this malfunction. Brought the truck to the local dealership & the said they replaced the throttle position sensor & it is worse now.
