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.

Frame rust enough to void inspection. Rust noticed within a year after purchase. Vehicle now fails inspection. I have another older GM vehicle housed in the same place, driven in the same area with double the mileage and three years older without this issue. I feel it is design/materials issue.

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) since this is the only place I can find on your site to send a complaint to, my issue is with all the Chevrolet recalls that are out there for my truck I have never gotten a letter or a card or any other kind of notice from the manufacturer. I have had the truck since new and have had to come here to print everything out and take it to the dealer to get it resolved. So I guess when they sell the car or truck they are not responsible any more to notify the owners? I have a Chevrolet 2003 Z71 4X4 [xxx] in my opinion this is not very good company to consumer relations. I do thank god for this site being here as this is the only way I can seem to keep up on the issues/trouble/recalls that are out here to find what's wrong with my truck to keep it on the road and running right. At this time they are now ordering me a new instrument cluster because of the stepper motor that went out and is registering over 120 mph at this time and im not even driving it, the dealer said that he had no recall for this and I proceeded to tell him I have the paperwork for your site and then he was still going to charge me for it except I sort of blew up in the service dept.[xxx]

In December of 2007 my 2003 Chevrolet extended cap Silverado truck's speedometer started jumping and getting stuck; it gave inaccurate speed while driving and while parked. Jan 08-an auto repair service charged me $108.98 for a speed sensor, $75.74 for a connector, and because of the time span to fix, $86.95 for a new battery gone dead. The speedometer continued to jump and get stuck, but I was unable to pay to get speedometer replaced. By Nov 08 ? symptoms got worse. While driving on the interstate, at first got stuck at 85mph when going 60, then it climbed to 120mph, then it went past 120mph and is now permanently stuck on "R" on the drive gear panel (straight down). My warranty is expired and I cannot afford to fix the problem.

: the contact stated when the temperature is below 25 degrees the heater does not blow hot air. The dealership inspected the vehicle several times and was unable to locate a problem within the heating system. Updated 2/13/2006 - the dealer replaced the thermostat and other components to correct the problem but the problem continued.
