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.

My vehicle is burning more oil than normal. I purchased the pickup on Aug 10, 2016 and the day prior the dealership had just done a fresh oil change. I double checked the new oil before driving from the lot and seen the oil was new and fresh. A month and a half later my husband is driving home from cape may New Jersey which is a 6 hour drive and just after filling up his gas tank and driving home...the vehicle starts smoking profusely. He had to add 5 quarts of oil to the vehicle because it looked as though the oil was completely drained from the engine.

Noticed a peculiar exhaust note somewhat like a tick that was reminescent of an exhaust leak. Took vehicle to local muffler exhaust shop and they inform me it is a manifold exhaust leak due to broken bolt(s) on the driver side. Was able to look for myself and I see one bolt head missing in the very back near the firewall.

The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado. The contact stated that while driving at approximately 10 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. The failure occurred on two occasions. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where the failure could not be duplicated. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 90,000.

There has been a long time problem of broken exhaust manifold bolts on 1999 to 2007 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups. This problem is on 80 to 90 percent of the trucks with in them years this is millions of vehicles on the road. These vehicles should be recalled by General Motors due to epa laws and emission standards not being able to be passed when these bolts break.
