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.

My 2001 Silverado 2500 series pickup has had the fuel tank level problem for some time now. When I inquired about how much it would cost to have it repaired, ($700) I decided that maybe I could live with it. The biggest problem with what was described to me as the problem, may not have be the solution. Guess what the next cure was supposed to cost, You guessed it, ($700). Now I'm not sure what the rest of you consider to be chump change, but this seems to be a bit much to pay for no guaranty that the problem won't come back. If anyone has found a sure cure to this problem, please let the rest of us know.

Please! everyone, check your break lines for heavy corrosion problems, I lent my truck to our son to pick up a baby bed and while he was using the truck the brake lines burst leaving him with absolutely no brakes. The cost to replace was close to $1000.

I am very disappointed with this product. With less than 100000 miles and having problems like this, not impressive, GM can't figure why the company is slowing going under. My friend has a new tundra, he will never buy another american product unless they can build Japanese quality, sad isn't it. This is one of the many problems we had with this slapped together piece of junk. Too bad because it is a nice truck to drive, almost as nice as a Tundra.

I fill up, regardless of amount of fuel, and gas gauge goes to empty and the empty light comes on..... drive awhile and they intermittently somewhat work....@ about 23 miles it will level out and for the most part work ok. The lite flashing and gas needle bouncing create a distraction from my "eyes on the road".
