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.

Brake lines had holes in them caused by corrosion, fuel line also. Noticed problem before anything serious happened. Cost over $1000 to replace brake and fuel lines.

The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The contact stated that when refueling the vehicle, gasoline began spewing from the fuel filler neck while refueling. The only way the contact was able to refuel the vehicle was to slowly pump the fuel for three seconds before allowing the fuel to drain into the tank for approximately 10 seconds without pumping. The failure recurred whenever the contact attempted to refuel the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that they would have to reposition parts of the fuel system to remedy the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 80,000 and the current mileage was 110,000. Updated 03/29/11 the consumer stated while letting the fuel drain into the tank it blew back as if it were pressurized.

- the contact stated the vehicle was idling low. The vehicle has been taken to a repair shop to be adjusted once. Since the adjustment the gas mileage has gotten worst. He said the vehicle is running at about 1000 RPM to warm up.

I purchased a brand new 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in may, 2006. I had no trouble with the vehicle.. until October 27. I had 3800 miles on the truck. I had filled my gas tank just out of san francisco and drove approximately 60 miles just out side of calistoga, California northbound on hwy 29. A winding, uphill mountainous road, single lane traffic except for a few passing lanes and turn-outs. I was driving up an incline. I noticed smoke wisping behind the cab. Almost immediately, the truck died... red indicators on. Fortunately, it died right at a wide passing lane location, and I veered to the right, blocking one of two northbound lanes. I got out of the truck and saw serious smoke and some flame coming from under the bed of the truck, up between the cab and the front of the bed. A vehicle behind me, evidently saw it already and pulled over to assist. Another vehicle, driving southbound pulled over, had an extinguisher which I shot underneath the bed, but it did not help. At that point, I was concerned that the vehicle would blow up. There was an extreme fire danger in the area and there was a strong possibility that this could also turn into a forest fire. There was no stopping the fire. The truck was engulfed in flames. The calistoga fire department was enroute. The fire department arrived and doused the truck fire and a brush fire. California highway patrol showed up. Secured the area for the fire department to neutralize any residual fires and the arrival of the tow truck. The truck was totally burned. A full blown raging truck fire, on a single lane highway in extremely dry conditions, in the middle of an area with blind turns in both directions. Absolutely amazing.
