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.

  • 50,500 miles


2006 Chevrolet Silverado. Blower motor resistor shorts out and melts wires, have replaced twice - once a burning smell was noticed. The same problem happened with an 04 and an 05 Silverado at my job. Despite fire hazard, inability to use defrost causes visibility problems.

2006 Chevrolet 1500 dual air conditioner control blows heat on driver's side while blowing cold on passenger's side (even though the ac is set for both sides). Wiring harness has a short on the blower, which produces a burning smell.

The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. At 4,000 miles the indicator light for the four wheel drive illuminated and stayed on for 2 to 3 days until it was repaired. At 11,000 miles the vehicle over heated, and the water pump had to be replaced. Under 20,000 miles the front brakes failed, and it was hard to stop the vehicle at a normal distance. On 04/30/2007 while driving 75 mph, the ABS indicator light came on, an hour later the right front end of the truck shook and the engine shut off. The vehicle currently has 52,000 miles, and began failing at 4,000 miles.
