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.

  • 67,850 miles
A roaring sound began in the front left hub bearing assembly on my 2006 Chevrolet Silverado Z-71 on 25 October, 2009. On the following day, the noise became a horrible grinding sound, and the front left wheel began wobbling badly. I had to have the vehicle towed to atwood Chevrolet in vicksburg, ms where I live. I was informed that the left front hub bearing assembly was shot, and had to be replaced. Approximately 18 months before, the right front hub-bearing assembly had to be replaced on this same vehicle. The Chevrolet dealership (atwood Chevrolet) replaced the part on 27 October, 2009. I was informed by the service manager that this was occurring at a constant rate on this vehicle. When I talked to the GM representative on 28 October, I was told that 'because of the environment in which I live here in Mississippi", this is expected.
