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.

The truck I purchased has a max towing package that is supposed to safely tow 10,600# in crew cab configuration. I have a 28' pace daytona trailer that weighs under 8,000# as I tow it. At approximately 50 mph, the truck has a very severe sway issue. It is frightening to drive as the trailer starts shifting the rear of the truck back and forth. I have not had an accident with the truck as yet, but I feel the situation is very dangerous. I have contacted Chevrolet customer service in Michigan to ask for assistance with this issue. They say they have no information that can help solve my problem. I was instructed to bring the truck and trailer to lone star Chevrolet in houston where I purchased the truck. Several visits there and talking to several service people has yielded no help. I was told that the truck can't pull a trailer of that physical size. Oddly enough, the 2012 model truck advertises a new sway control feature. This 2013 brochure ever depicts a scene of the trailer swaying as mine does, with a box type trailer in the add. Since Chevrolet claims it has no history of this being an issue, I felt that I should notify someone of this unsafe situation with this particular vehicle. Thanks for allowing me to share my problem with someone who might research this issue and try to prevent a serious accident.
