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.

The engine keep crashing down, the indicator say low engine pressure, check engine pressure, then the hole truck will shut down in the middle of producing. This happen three time already. Im on the highway driving 80mil and the truck will shut down, cant move the wheel, cant change lines, cant restart the truck or anything. This has almost coast me life three time. What kind of safety shut down is that. I think it is very unsafe and needs to change or fix. I spent over $2,500 on my truck thinking the problem is fix, but it keep recurring. The Chevy engineers guys just say that the prob cant be fix and my best bet is to get a new truck, or engine. I don't have money for that.

While driving, brake pedal will go all the way to the floor when braking suddenly. Also while driving on highway, consumer slammed on brakes to avoid a collision and the rear brakes locked up and vehicle slid. Also the engine vibrates when the air condition is on, the dealer repositioned clamp, when it is rainy hard the drivers door leaks at the top weatherstrip, the exhaust vibrates when vehicle is in reverse, the passenger seat rattles.
