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 #2

Mar 012003

Silverado 1500 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,000 miles


While driving and upon looking into the passenger side mirror one could not see what was coming up on the side shifter. Consumer contacted the dealer. However, consumer was told there was nothing they could do. Also, transmission will intermittently fail. Consumer stated that when driving through water or mud shift lever will freeze up. Poor design, mud, snow, ice trapped on to shifter cable and safety switch, then they freeze into position and also causes safety switch to malfunction and go bad.

I have had three mirrors installed on the truck under warranty and having the same problem with all three mirrors, when I drive on the interstate to work every day the mirror vibrates so bad I cant see anything out of the mirror and have had several close calls merging into traffic I have had the truck to 2 Chevrolet dealers for this problem and they say there is no fix for this. I called GM customer care and have a file number on the case but they told me there was no fix also and offered me 2 free oil changes to resolve this problem I declined there offer but do not no what I should do at this point.
