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 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
Our daughter was driving along us highway 83 approximately 3.5 miles North of junction, Texas when the 2002 Z71 Chevrolet pickup traveling South, unexpectedly and with great force without the driver's control, made a right turn off the roadway causing severe damage to the vehicle and injury. Either defective steering and/or the front passenger side cv joint locked up causing the vehicle to be totalled. Vehicle had all current and suggested mainentence by the owner's manual but must have had some type of defect.
