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.

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 8-cyl

  • 38,500 miles
2009 Chevy Silverado lost traction on highway during slippery road conditions, vehicle spun out and hit a metal roped fence head on and also went across the median and slammed the front end of vehicle into a guard rail stopping it instantly from going into on coming traffic. The vehicles damage was on the front end directly in the center causing a wedge into the radiator, engine and bent the front of the frame. The impact was very loud and solid. The impact caused the truck to stand on the front of vehicle, slamming the back end of the vehicle on the ground with great force. The airbag didn't deploy which at the speed of around 60 mph and the place the vehicle was hit in, makes me very concerned on the safety of this vehicle. My 5 year old son said his right arm was hurting after the accident and with in the hour of having the accident myself ended up in the hospital with a stiff neck and a very soar and bruised back, I was released with minor injuries and I consider myself lucky. Please let me know if anything can be done about this situation and the safety of myself and my son.

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 4WD 8-cyl

  • 37,400 miles
While driving 60mph on a highway, the truck suddenly lurched and two warnings came on the dash; service stabilitrac and service traction control. The truck also operated under reduced power and I had no control over the accelerator. Going up hills was an adventure. This is a serious safety hazard for this to happen while driving at anytime anywhere. Did extensive research online, and found this is a common problem with GM stabilitrac. Brought truck to dealer for repair and they said this is the first one they had seen with this condition. Truck had 37,400 miles. Dealer replaced throttle control body for free under the powertrain warranty. Truck currently runs fine, but the truck does not idle as well as it used to, slight vibration and stutter, dealer said GM said this is common and not a problem, it is set electronically and cannot be adjusted. Do we really need all this electronic crap?
