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 6-cyl

Steering column felt loose - dealership greased it - it appears this will be an every 10,000 miles expense. Dealership refuses to admit the beam shake exists that I have just looked up and says they do not know anything about it. This causes the mirrors to be unusable. Power steering pump is making noises while turning the wheel all the way to one direction. Lifters are clattering all the time while driving the vehicle. There is a clunking noise while making a right turn.
