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.

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 8-cyl

I was driving my 2006 Chevy Silverado 1500, 4-door. I had my wife and two children in the truck. When we got to our destination, my daughter could not open her door (rear driver side door). I confirmed the doors were unlocked by using the automatic lock/unlock feature I have on the drivers door. I tried to open the door from the outside, but it would not work. I tried to manually unlock the door from the inside, but the door would still not open. I brought it to the dealership and they told me the electronic latch had to be replaced. The dealership also told me they have had a number of problems with the latches which prevented the door from opening. This is obviously a safety issue.
