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.

2004 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 012008

Silverado 2500 LS V8 6.0L Gas

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles


Speedometer erratic display / failed. Registered a constant speed even when parked and registered max speed when driving slowly. Speed indicator was not accurate.

Researched problem and found a speedometer shop online that repaired it. For $290, they replaced each motor in the indicator assembly, because it would have eventually happened to the other cheaply built indicator motors as well, and they provided a lifetime warranty.

Had to remove the cluster myself but they provided shipping both ways and even sent a mailing label and box. Local speedometer shop wanted $20 more plus other costs. Been working great since then.

Silverado 2500 LT 6.0L

  • 86,992 miles

Haven't had it fixed yet..GM had the cluster on recall but you had to have it done before 70000 miles or 115000 klms or before 2012 .. I purchased the truck in 2012 used, it was already passed the mileage for the recall . Now GM wants over 500 $ to rebuild or replace the cluster . The part IS DEFECTIVE !! So why is there a limitation on the recall ?
