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 #4

Nov 072008

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,764 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. While driving 75 mph on a cross country trip, the ABS indicator illuminated. The dealer stated that the inboard retention nut that was used to maintain the hub bearing assembly loosened, which resulted in the ABS indicator illuminating, noise, and/or wheel separation. The VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 07E106000 (wheels:cap/cover/hub). The manufacturer and dealer stated that the repair would cost $711. The contact will pay for the repair, but feels that his vehicle should be included in the recall since the failures are identical. The failure mileage was 61,764. Updated 12/11/08. Updated 12/11/08.

I was driving home from orange county on March 15, 2008 with my three children at around 8pm. I was traveling East on the 91 fwy when we began hearing a squeaking sound in my tires and my ABS light had come on, shortly after our journey home the squeaking sound was followed by a grinding sound as well. I began getting off to the shoulder and started hearing the sound of little things dropping to the ground, followed by more things hitting the ground and my steering wheel began pulling to the right, so I pulled over just under the Lincoln exit in corona. As I was coming to a stop the truck suddenly came to a hard stop, because my entire wheel came off!

My wife (ann garlatta - with our three children in the vehicle as well) was driving home and the ABS light came on, she heard noise in wheel while driving - like a squeaking & grinding, then the steering started to pull, and she started hearing the sound of pieces popping off, so my wife pulled over to the side of the 91 fwy, upon slowing down to the shoulder the car abruptly stopped as the front passenger side wheel fell off.

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 4WD 8-cyl

I have a 2005 Chevy Z-71. The wheel center caps fly off of the vehicle while driving. This has happened twice in the past month, and during the latest incident it almost caused a severe car accident. The center cap flew off of my driver's side rear wheel and hit an oncoming vehicle on the windshield. This caused the startled driver to wildly swerve back and forth into oncoming traffic behind me and almost cause a head-on collision. On a more minor note: These caps are a $70/ piece factory only item which should be covered under warranty when they fly off, but are not!
