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.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 312009

Silverado 2500 LT 6.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 124,500 miles


I just picked up this 2003 2500HD with the Duramax and Allison Transmission 4x4 124,500 Miles on the clock...I drove 500 miles to get it, and test drove great, on the way home it revved up a few times and sounded like a grind, transmission temp was good and I even stopped and checked fluid level and everything was good. I drove the rest of the way home and it acted up 2 more times.

My mechanic friend seems to think the transfer case is bad. So the lot is not taking any responsibility and as far as I can tell the factory Remaining warranty only covers the Injectors? This sucks and should be fixed.
