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.

  • 29,000 miles
When rotating my tires at 29,000 miles, I inspected the front disc brakes on my truck. I noticed that ton both front wheels. The disc brake pads were only touching the rotors in an area of 1/2" on the inside of the rotors. I took the truck to the dealer and they said it wasn't covered by the warranty because it had more than 25000 miles. I had to replace the rotors and brake pads at my own expense of $400.

In February 2010, I started to notice a clicking noise in the front wheel of my 2005 Silverado. While returning from Florida the noise increased and the right front hub bearing failed and had to be replaced at 32,000 for $500. Approximately two months later, the left side failed and the dealer replaced it and I had to pay $100. During the summer the intermediate steering shaft had to be replaced at a cost of $120.

: the contact stated there was excessive tire wear due to a problem with the vehicle's front end. The tire wore down to the wear bar, from the center of the tire to the outside edge. There was a bad vibration in the front end, most noticeable at 45 mph, but was felt at all speeds, and whenever the vehicle encountered irregularities in the road. The service dealer was notified, but not the manufacturer.

: the contact stated the front suspension is inadequate while driving on concrete poured road conditions. The speed of the vehicle must be decreased or the vehicle will go about a foot and half into the air. The dealership has been alerted and the shocks have been replaced twice however, this did not correct the problem. The manufacturer was alerted and a complaint was filed.

problem #2

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
The contact started having problems at 1,000 miles with the tires. The tires started feathering on the outside edges. At 2,700 miles the dealer replaced the front tires on 10-6-05. The rear tires also started to feather. The dealership refused to replace the rear tires under warranty. The front end alignment was performed at that time. In regard to the alignment, the camber, caster, toe in, and toe out were all determined out of adjustment on all four sides from the factory. This was determined by the dealership. After the new tires and the front end alignment was done the vehicle still pulled to the left extremely hard.
