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.

problem #6

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 4WD 8-cyl

  • 39,400 miles


The rear tail light assembly is breaking out of these pickup trucks because of a weak design to secure the light assembly in place. The plastic clips on the side of the light assembly that attaches to the small metal clip and screw breaks off allowing the light assembly to fall out of the truck bed and hang by the rear light wiring harness. While driving the truck it strikes a pothole or rough place in the road the plastic clips break and the tail light assembly falls out of the truck. I have seen several trucks with the rear light assembly taped up to secure the lights. This is very expensive to replace this light assembly.

I see you recalling BMW cars for lights failing! why don't you recall GM trucks and SUV's for failing running lights" from their introduction they have been advertised as a safety feature! I would guess 97% of all GM trucks and SUV's have one or both of the lights not working! an obvious design flaw!! my 2006 Silverado has had the passenger side light replaced 4 times. If this is not a safety issue, even though advertised as such, it cost owners a big sum of money to keep repairing them because of GM's obvious faulty design!! why does GM get a pass but BMW does no" thanks

Left turn signal does not work all the bulbs and fuses have been checked and has no problem. The trouble appears to be in the electrical connection. It is dangerous to drive due to making unsafe left turns. The passenger side door interior light stays on when all others go off. Has been reported to 2 dealers and they have done nothing.

Bought it new, replaced battery in 6 months, have replaced headlights and back lights twice, the truck shimmies while braking, engine light keeps coming on, engine heats up while idling, shall I continue? I have purchased GMC prior to this Chevrolet. I do like the product but GMC has incredible customer service for these types of problems. Chevrolet will not provide you with a loaner and can never duplicate the problem. I hope the truck lasts until my last payment.

Rear tail light assembly fell out. After talking with GM and the local dealership they have said that they have vehicles on the lot that this incident is occurring to and several that have been purchased that they are replacing. They will not replace mine because of the mileage on my vehicle. The main concern is that if you are driving down the road and the assembly falls out and you use your turn signal, the person behind you wouldn't see it and could cause a crash possibly a fatal one. I have not heard of any at this time, but I do believe it is something that needs to be looked into by the safety commission. I would hate for GM to be sued for a fault in their product due to a fatal crash or one that involved a serious injury.

2006 Chevy Silverado with faulty brake lights. Consumer stated that the brake lights have failed four times in ten months. This failure almost got the consumer in a serious accident. The consumer discovered the bulbs were not burning out, but the problem was due to arcing caused by poorly designed socket contacts. The consumer stated GM needs to redesign the socket to provide line contact at the socket/bulb electrical interface. The present design provides contact only.
