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.

I bought a 2006 Silverado ext cab LT3 at the end of February 2006. In March headliner came down. Replaced two weeks later. Six weeks later headliner came down again the second time. Replaced headliner one week later. Two days after replacing headliner, it came down the third time. I contacted area rep to have him research the headliner issue (which I already went to two other dealerships and they are selling these trucks with the defected headliners and knowingly selling them). I waited a full month then went for another replacement which took two weeks to come in. One week later headliner coming down again the 4th time. Area rep said he put in a tsb to show it is a defect that the headliners are cut too short. I checked on NHTSA and no tsb's are listed about a Silverado headliner. People haven't noticed this because it isn't obvious. You have to look at the top of your open doors where the headliner meets the rubber gasket and you will see the cut of the fabric of the headline and the molded headliner piece with it. I've called area rep and it's been 3 days and no return call. I was told it has nothing to do with the factory sunroof either. If the factory knows the headliner's are defective why do they keep sending the ones that are defective instead of waiting till the right ones come out?

Consumer was sold a 2006 Silverado with engine damages. ***** when the consumer contacted the dealership to tell them what he had discovered wit the engine cowling, they had advised him it was squirrel damage. Even though the dealer acknowledged the problem, they refused to give the consumer another vehicle. The consumer and his family had become sick. They believed it was from the bacteria coming from the venting system. The front tires were out of round and the rims were bent.

: the contact stated upon inspection, it was noticed, the under hood shield was ripped and the intake manifold was scratched. The tread was separating from the passenger front tire in chunks. The dealership determined the under hood damage was caused by a squirrel. Although the dealer was alerted no additional inspections have been made. The manufacturer has been alerted.
