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.

problem #10

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles

The speedometer one morning just went to 110 mph when I was driving 55 and then stayed. It would work one minute and then not the next. Finally after two days it stayed at 160. There was no way to drive it and tell what speed I was going. I have received a speeding ticket recently and wonder if the speedometer was malfunctioning then. The failure speedometer was 63,000 just 2,000 out of warranty. I went to the dealer who showed me the special bulletin on the 03 and 04 but since mine was an 05 I had to pay $501.30 to have it repaired. I placed an incident w/ GM who had the guts to tell me that there was not an instrument panel failure on the 05 (kinda funny since I have a 05 that failed) and that since my vehicle was not an 03 or 04 that it couldn't be happening. Even though the dealership that fixed it knew right away the problem and admitted I wasn't the first 05 he had seen. The entire instrument cluster was replaced.

Speedometer failed, locked on 60 mph will not move, caused receive speeding ticket 78 in 65 zone from police. Also the company I work for has a 2005 like this one, the speedometer failed last week in that truck. This should be a recall. If I had been driving in the mountains, this could have caused a crash. Had to pay to replace instrument cluster. 50,400 miles.
