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.

2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Owner Comments

problem #2

May 062016

Silverado 1500

  • 800 miles


Issue 1 - transmission: The Chevrolet Silverado has a 6-speed transmission that clunks / hard shifts (very hard). GM indicates that this is normal and/or the transmission is adapting to your driving style. The clunk is very distraction (startling) when driving. The transmission also hesitates in selecting gears. This is very dangerous when attempting to accelerate into traffic. On two occassion, I attempted to merge on to the interstate and the delayed transmission engagement almost resulted in a collision. Issue 2 - engine: The Chevrolet Silverado has an active fuel management that drops the truck down to 4 cylinders. When this occurs, the entire truck will vibrate / reverberate causing headaches.
