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.

problem #2

Sep 152011

Silverado 2500 LS 8.1L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


The cab corners are about gone, the kick boards are rusting, the drivers door bottom seal fell off from rust underneath, the frame is completely covered with rust. The tailgate bottom is rusting, the fenders are rusting. If I park my truck on the concrete slab in front of the garage and it rains...I come out in the morning to rust stains all over the concrete where the truck sat. This is the worst GM product I have ever owned!!

I wish I had photos of this problem. Maybe some day I will take the time to shoot it. The rockers on my truck have failed wonderfully. So much so that the local MACO wants between 5-6 grand to fix it. They even said I might have better luck with a fabricator... WTF !? I would choose a Fix Or Repair Daily after experiencing this little sweetheart. Looks good from 50 yards at nite with a half or less moon.
