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.

I purchased (4) nitto terra grappler at 265/70/17 tires about 2 months ago. Ever since I've had them I've been having a sliding problem. When I almost come to a complete stop the tires start sliding on dry and dirt free pavement and activates my ABS. My ABS sensors are not dirty. I've never had this problem with tires like I do with these. It can be dangerous and very surprising at times when I drive with this problem occurring. I sent the manufacturer a complaint email. But never got a response. My local dealer says it's a tire problem. Only thing I can do is disable the ABS. But even if I do that it won't stop the sliding.

My 2006 Chevrolet Silverado has a defect where the tires rub against the suspension of the vehicle whenever a turn is made. This could cause a tire to blow out causing me to lose control of the vehicle. Chevrolet says they can not repair my truck.

Front end out of alignment constantly, tires wear out, dealership has replaced or refinished rotors three or more times and this problem continues, the engine while lightly accelerating make a noise, dealer said he could not hear this noise. I am trying to lemon law this vehicle because the front end is a weak manufacturer front end and not designed properly.

: the contact stated the vehicle shimmied in the front and rear at 40-60 mph. The contact was unable to see out of the rear view and passenger side mirrors due to the severe vibration. The dealership informed the contact there was a problem with the frame on the 1999-2006 model years of these vehicles and they were unable to correct the problem. The right side door was hard to shut. Updated 09/13/06.

I bought a 06 Chevy Silverado pickup in June 06. The truck has 1800 miles on it and it has a bad vibration at any speed over 30 mph. I have brought the truck back to the dealer 4 times and each time they rebalance the tires. The last time I was there they let 5 lbs of air out of each tire. They are now telling me that it is "the nature of the beast" and the tires have to get broke it before the vibration will stop. The truck has general ameritrac P245/70/R17 tires on it. I took the truck to a local tire dealer and was told that the tires are out of round and loping causing the vibration in the truck. The dealer keeps giving me the saying they are waiting for the Chevrolet factory rep to come there. I an afraid to drive the truck with this vibration as I am unable to walk and use a wheelchair and I don't want to be broke down someplace with this truck. What can I do to get this problem resolved?

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.

I have a brand new 2006 Chevy Silverado pickup and it came with P265/70R/17 Goodyear Wrangler St tires. At 2700 miles the right rear tire went flat while traveling on a paved road and at 5500 miles the left front tire went flat while traveling on a graveled road. Both tires had cuts in the center of the tires and were very similar. I complained to Goodyear and they won't do anything about this unsafe tire.

We were driving down the interstate at 75 mph and had a rear tire blowout for no apparent reason other than a possible tire defect. We did not hit anything. We quickly slowed and got off the road. The tire side wall blew out. The tires are new and had less than 3000 miles on them.
