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 #1

Oct 312008

Silverado 2500 4WD Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. The contact stated that the transfer case was designed with a defect. As a result, the pump in the transfer case wore a hole from the inside to the outside of the transfer case. This allowed the oil in the transfer case to pump out the hole and caused the transfer case to run drive. The dealer stated that the vehicle was out of warranty and the contact would have to pay for the repair. The failure mileage was 130,000. Updated 3/16/09 the power steering started leaking fluid. The dealer informed the consumer the power steering fluid leak was coming from the hydro booster onto the power steering gear. The consumer lost his brakes. It was discovered the booster rod was missing. The parking brake did not work and the instrument cluster failed as well. The speedometer did not work it was reading 60 mph even when the vehicle was parked. Updated 03/18/09.
