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 Hybrid 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13 miles


2005 Chevy C1500 half ton pickup T was placed in storage for about a month. This vehicle was never used and had only 13 miles on the speedometer when recieved from the dealer. This was a company vehicle, and when out of storage it was discovered there was no brake fluid. The master cyclinder was completely dry. Took to a dealer and dealer could not find any leaks. Essentially, they could not find the cause.
