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

  • Automatic transmission
  • 107,000 miles


My Chevy 2500 HD Silverado caught on fire while driving. It is a complete loss. smoke was coming from the dashboard. I pulled over, as soon as I able to get out of truck-it went up in flames. what the heck-don't know yet why or if even the insurance company will be able to find it.

Silverado 2500 HD 6.0L Gasoline

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,900 miles

This is the worst vehicle I have ever owned. I've had it less than 1 year, and has under 90,000 miles. I left my house and got 1/4 mile down the street and the entire cab of the truck filled with smoke. Had to call 911 and have the fire department come to the scene. An electrical fire above the head liner killed the electronics in the entire vehicle. no lights, power seats, radio, dash cluster, external lights and signals, horn, nothing works, engine wont start. stay as far away from this truck as possible
