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.

2001 Chevrolet Silverado has broken tailgate straps and I was informed by GM to call my local dealer immediately and have them replaced. Kool chevorlet of grand rapids would not honor this, and told me I would have to purchase them. When I asked what happens if it false off they said it was GMC problem.saftey is obviously not a concern here.I called to make a appointment like my GM documentstated and they stated that I would have to purchase the straps and stated they would still have to be replaced because they were defective.
