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

  • 2,200 miles


October 31, 2014 on my home from work I heard a bang. The truck pulled very hard to the left taking me into the concrete barrier that divides the highway. Vehicle was in motion us highway 41/45 65 mph. After the truck was investigated at the dealer to give an estimate on the damage it was discovered the left rear axel was broken. Questioning the dealer about this issue and not getting anywhere I talked to different mechanics that I know after a week or so it was discovered there was a recal for insuffcient heat treated rear axles talking to the dealer and I was told this did not pertain to my vehicle as the recall was taken care of at the factory. I cantacted Chevrolet and was told that because I had given the ok for the dealer to make the repairs. My insurance company would need to fole paper work against Chevrolet which myself I believe is wrong. I was also told by the dealer broken axle was typical of this kind of impact. There is no damage on the side panel or rear of the truck I do have pictures on my phone which I have not downloaded to my computer.

My dog was lacerated via the rear bottom corner of the driver's side door when he ran by it. Not quite sure why the design would come to such a point. A trip to the emergency vet, staples, antibiotics, and $$$ later he is now at home recovering.

Silverado 1500 8-cyl Diesel

  • 475 miles
After having rains for almost 3 days straight in southern California, I finally got some time to clean the interior of my vehicle. Upon moving the floor mat on the passenger side, I notice the carpet was soaking wet. There is a leak somewhere near the firewall allowing water to enter the cabin on the passenger side. Long term, I am afraid of mold and mildew accumulation as well as water affecting electronics. Front drivers seat has a lot of slop in it. Upon accelerating and braking, I can feel the front drivers seat rock forward and backward slightly. Seat makes a clunking/tapping noise. Radio reception is terrible. Fm radio looses signal strength and sounds like you're in a cave.
