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.

There was no accident to my vehicle I purchased a new vehicle from a company and I have been having problems out of the vehicle since I made the purchase. The dealership replaced the tires, then replaced one of the rims but the problem still exist they also did a front end alignment, the service manager stated that he had no idea what to next to solve the problem, there is a shaking or vibration in the vehicle when it is driven. I have had several conversations with GM and still the matter hasn't been resolved.

The contact owns a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado. The contact stated that the spare tire fractured from the vehicle. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was told that someone had stolen the tire. The contact was advised by an independent mechanic that the spare tire cable was almost impossible to cut once the tire was attached and the cable was retracted. The tire was not replaced. The failure mileage was unknown, but the current mileage was 14,115.

Silverado 1500 Hybrid 4WD 8-cyl

Conditions: Heavy misting rain, 32 deg F, lowering temperature, daytime. This is to report a design defect of the windshield defogging system. The defogging system operated as designed. There was no failure of the equipment. When the windshield defogger is selected this vehicles system automatically sets to outside air and turns off the airconditioning compressor at 32 deg F and below. On December 6th while driving during misting rain at slightly above freezing with the temperature slowly lowering I experienced a rapid and serious problem clearing the windshield of mist on the inside surface of the windshield as well as all other glass surfaces when the temperature fell below freezing and the airconditioning compressor cut off. Despite using the windshield defogger at the maximum heat and fan setting I was forced to pull over to the side of the road because I could no longer see well enough to drive safely. Selection of windshield defogging mode actually worsened the problem initially. I believe that the design of the system creates the potential (and in this case actual) danger of rapid loss of visibility to the outside of the vehicle with the possibility of a loss of effective control.
