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.

The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado. The contact stated that while driving at 70 mph, the check engine warning light illuminated. The contact noticed there was a engine leak and noticed that a few bolts that hold the exhaust pipe were missing. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the issue. The contact had not experienced a failure. The VIN was not available.

Fuel evap system malfunctioning not allowing fuel system to vent thus making it almost impossible to refuel the vehicle. This also results in a check engine light to occur. The dealership found a bulletin on this problem: Dtc P0446 (restricted/blocked evap vent path) set, check engine light on (replace evaporative emission (evap) vent valve solenoid assembly and add/relocate filter box using service kit). This seems to be a common and recurring issue and the repair is to not only replace the part, but change the existing design of the system. Why is this not a recall where the manufacturer fixes the problem since it is obviously an engineering problem? I have read many blogs that include almost new vehicles with this same problem.

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 8-cyl

  • 92,000 miles
The brake lines, fuel lines and the frame crossmembers are all severely rusted. It just is a matter of time before I loose my brakes, go up in flames or drop my gas tank onto the highway. The body on this truck is not too bad. It has 92,000 miles on it, and it is cleaned quite often. The undercarriage is rusted very badly. I expected more from something that costs so much. Cant afford a new one and if I could it wouldn't be a GM. Have always owned GM in the past.
