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.

There is no excuse for a diesel engine with 136,000 miles to have any major failure or defect. Vehicle has done minimum towing over its life. Manufacturer rates vehicles tow capacity at 14,700 pounds, tows a boat at 13,500 pounds 4 miles each way on level ground. Chevrolet has stated it will not stand by their equipment. Between government ownership and lack of quality, guess my next truck will be a Ford.
