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.

I had driven back home from Tahoe around 6:00pm and the vehicle was parked for 2 hours when we attempted to open the slide on the 5th wheel. I found the slide on the trailer would not open due to a lack of power on the 5th wheel. At this time the pigtail was still connected to the truck. I disconnected the pigtail from the truck and plugged the trailer into a 50 amp plug and the slide opened normally. I thought it was strange that the battery had discharged after such a short time. Around 10:45pm my girlfriend screamed the trailer was on fire and when I reached the backdoor the entire trailer was engulfed and the rear of the truck was already on fire. Both the vehicles were completely destroyed along with a barn that was approximately10 feet away suffering major damage.

Rear head rests do not have a locking mechanism to keep them locked in place when raised. This allows the rear head rests to fall to the lowest position with very little force. General Motors has stated that this is normal and within specifications. Owners are advised to inspect the rear head rests to determine for themselves whether this poses an acceptable risk to their passengers. Adults riding in the rear seat should be advised of this condition.
