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 #4

Silverado 1500 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,514 miles


- the contact said that the cap and rotor that goes to the spark plug had been replaced, because of a recall. The contact said that the parts went bad a year later. He took the truck back to the dealer (pearson Buick GMC) and they replace the parts again, but they charged him $100 for his warranty use. The contact said that since the parts are still under recall why did they charge him for this warranty use? the contact has repair orders for all the work.
