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.

problem #1

Aug 192006

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
: the contact stated in the early morning of 8/19/2006, police and witness reports suggested the vehicle veered off the right lane onto the breakdown lane, and then swerved across and off the left side of the road, flipped upside down, impacting a tree on the right side of the vehicle. The road was clear and dry. A witness stopped to render assistance, ran to the vehicle, viewed the situation and returned to another vehicle to call in the emergency. The witness felt and heard two explosions and was unable to get within 10 feet of the wreck due to the extreme heat of the fire. The driver was wearing a seatbelt when death occurred due to the fire. Police and fire department reports were taken. Photos were taken at the impound lot by the contact.
