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.

Silverado 2500 6.0L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,210 miles

I had to have the entire braking system removed and redone, including the rotors, calipers and all the brake lines. I only had 56,000 miles on the vehicle. It is parked outside but on asphalt. I had maintained the vehicle properly. I would like to know how to contact the Chevrolet company to file a complaint. I have not taken pictures but can include them in e-mails to anyone interested who can give me advice.
