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.

When braking at low speeds, the ABS system engages and the vehicle does not stop where intended. This delayed braking can cause rear ending of the car ahead of you or unintentionally entering an intersection. The technical bulletin put out by GM suggests that the cause may be due to rust and debris built up on the senor mounting surface and includes instructions for cleaning. My mechanic followed these instructions and they did not work. The only fix for this problem is to replace all four sensors for a cost of well over $1000. GM recalled 2001 Silverado's for the same problem but then continued to use the faulty senors in later models and did not recall the 2006. The internet is full of 2006 Silverado owners complaining about this very dangerous problem.

In attempting to purchase a 4X4, lwb, 2006 Chevy Silverado-hd truck from bartow Chevrolet, they refused to furnish me with written proof that the recalls listed for this vehicle were not in the lot of recalls listed on the internet. Further, the GM supplier discount office and the Chevrolet marketing department also refused to furnish this written proof. Bartow Chevrolet told me that since I requested this written proof, I couldn't trust them and since I couldn't trust, they were not going to sell the truck to me; because I, as the consumer, wanted written proof that this vehicle was safe to drive and would not cause harm or death to me or anyone else in this vehicle. To me, it was a fair consumer request to ask bartow Chevrolet to provide written proof that this was a safe vehicle to drive, that all of the recalls had been fixed, and that anyone driving or riding in this vehicle would also be reassured of being safe from bodily harm and/or death.
