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.

problem #6

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 8-cyl

  • 124,620 miles


I was riding at about 25 mph engine reduce power light came on, engine had no power to pull. Engine stabilizer control light came on. This is about the third time this has happen. The first time it happen the vehicle had less than a 115,000 miles on it. The second time it happen I call the dealer they replaced a sensor on the throttle body. They told me if it didn't work that I would have to replace the throttle body out of my own pocket. Now it is doing it again. I think it something wrong with the throttle body system from the manufacturer. If this happens on a major highway it could cause injury or a fatality.

Silverado 1500 Hybrid

The contact owns a 2010 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. While driving approximately 20-35 mph, the vehicle abnormally accelerated. The contact applied the brakes and shifted into neutral. The failure recurred three times and the vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection. The dealer advised that the contact has possibly engaged the cruise control haphazardly, causing the failure. The dealer neither inspected the vehicle nor performed a diagnostic test. The failure persisted and also, the vehicle would exhibit a delay in decelerate for at least four seconds after disengaging the brakes. The vehicle was taken to the dealer a second time yet the contact was advised that the failure was normal for the vehicle and was not repaired. The failure mileage was unknown and the current mileage was 6,000.
