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 1500

The vehicle is a 2002 Silverado 1500. The frame cross member that is located just in front of the gas tank has rusted out on the base of the mounts on each side where it is connected to the lower part of the frame. This makes the vehicle not able to be inspected in the state of Vermont. The regional Chevy rep said it isn't a common problem which leads me to believe it must be a defect in the undercoating done on my truck that allowed this deterioration to happen. The truck is well cared for and should not rust in such a basic structural component.
