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.

On my 2014 Chevy Silverado when I was filling the tank with gas the fill neck partially broke loose and I spilled about a cup of gas at a local gas station. I looked to see a plastic plug had broken causing the fill neck to come loose when fueling. I reported this to the dealer who informed me they have has "a couple dozen occurrences similiar" they said they would replace the defective part with the same part. This is one fastener that needs to be metal and held in with a lock washer. (not plastic) see pix. This should be a recall item --see my fix with a metal bolt vs the defective platstic plug that comes from the factory. Pls take action before someonene burns up in a fire due to thes fill neck fastener problem. Thank you. Larry trame the vehicle was parked at a gas station when the fill neck partially broke loose and dropped down, spilling gasoline.

Gas mileage complaint. Stated mileage (hwy ) is 22 mpg, the first six monthes of driving did achieve this stated mileage, occasionally as much as 23 mpg.after 2 recall service visits and an oil change, the mileage abruptly dropped to 18 mpg I complained to chev. Service in cottage grove, or several times over the course of 4 monthes they advised me to change fuel (service stations, ) put a fuel booster additive in the tank, check tire pressure.they also stated that the fuel mnfrs. Changing the fuel blend for the winter season may be the cause. No service codes in the computer. None of the suggested "fixes" have changed the mileage, still at around 18 mpg. Something caused this sudden drop in mpg.I have a couple of ideas, 1. one recall was a computer software upgrade, wrong shift parameters installed ? 2. at prescribed oil changes,06/03/14 &12/18/14, ( truck requires dexos 0-20 oil ) maybe wrong oil was installed " one invoice shows 5W-30 was installed. However dealership denies installing wrong oil. How can I have the oil analyzed to determine which is in the truck "

I was traveling up an incline when vehicle started jumping. Engine light came on, as well as stability or skid control and when turning on turn signal the wipers came on. Did not feel safe but drove to nearest dealership with vehicle jumping and missing out, about 4 blocks. Diagnoses was faulty fuel injector at 4577 miles on vehicle. After picking up vehicle when repair was done it missed out again but no engine light. Dealership could not duplicate the problem. Hope this isn't going to be ongoing issue.

Silverado 1500 6-cyl

  • 5,010 miles
Shortly after starting truck and departing to local store I noticed a strong fuel odor. After driving approximately 3-4 miles my gas tank went from 3/4 full to nearly empty, around the same time passerby's started flagging me down stating that my truck was leaking fuel and smoking from underneath. I immediately pulled over to closest parking lot to realize the truck was massively leaking fuel from different areas and was indeed smoking as if it was about to catch fire. I turned the truck off and moved away. The fuel leak stopped and the smoke eventually dissipated. It was been towed back to dealer by Chevrolet road side and is currently being checked for the problem.
