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.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 202005

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles


At 30 mph in 4 wheel drive, on a snowpacked road, something in the front differential broke and caused the front end to lock up. This sent the vehicle into an uncontrollabe slide into the ditch. Fortunately there were no obstacles to collide with. Vehicle would not operate in 4 wheel drive but would operate in 2 wheel drive. Had this happened at 50 mph on a mountain road, deaths would have occured. It is time that General Motors deals with this problem.
