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.

On August 13th, 2008 I went to darryl burke Chevy to consider buying a new truck and trading my 2006. During the trade in appraisal, the sales manager ask if the vehicle had ever been in an accident? I informed that no it had not. He said the tire, safety, and parts label VIN did not match the VIN in the windshield. I looked and witnessed the same information. The sales manager said that this would drastically effect the trade in value of my vehicle because it appears that replacement parts have been used. While researching this issue, I found that this must have occurred in the manufacturing process because there are 2 other vehicles which were shipped to other states that have the same problem. They have the labels on them that should be on my vehicle. The national insurance crime bureau has examined the other vehicles and determined that the manufacturer caused this mishap. I need to know if NHTSA can help with this issue because obviously most any dealer is going to recognize the discrepancy and may result in a depreciation in the value of my vehicle. The following vins appear on my vehicle. Windshield, safety label, part label match windshield, tire load label. Thanks for any help.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 extended 0.5 ton: Spear-tire lowering device. The plastic tube from bumper to square lowering nipple does not align. When inserting rode into tube you cannot connect with nipple. After 25 min. If fishing around for connection one person must crawl under the vehicle, look through small hole in rim of the spare-tire and with the third link of crank rode push the tube up and have the other person make the crank to nipple connection. The tube was not broken just too flexible and was out of alignment by at least 2 inches. One person far from any help like we were would be in trouble. Also, there needs to be a flat metal contact pad on the rear axle that the jack top can rest on. The jack top is almost flat and seeing it resting on a round axle is unsettling. The jack need to also extend at least 1 inch more then it does because at full height the tire barely went on. We could have repositioned the jack further down the axle to get more height.
