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.

I have serious concerns about the interior door handles on the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado pu trucks. The location and general shape of these handles make them very easy to accidently open while vehicle is moving. This vehicle is equipped with auto locks, however, these safety locks don't seem to always function. There are certain situations when a door can be unlocked and the automatic locks does not relock. Y wife was injured on the incident date. She had removed her seat belt to retrieve items from floorboard when her purse strap snagged on door handle and caused the door to open. She fell from a vehicle moving at approximately 35-40 mph. She suffered a closed head injury and clavicle fracture.
