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.

problem #1

Jan 122009

Silverado 2500

  • 33,000 miles


I purchased a "new" 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500 utility bed work truck...the dealership ripped me off with the trade in;refused to apply the cash back and down payment assistance GM was offering-and when I got the truck home, saw the inside of toolboxes were rusted...the heater blew, the airconditioning quit working, stereo/cd player quit, as well...the dealer refused to fix the rust;destroyed the pics and service report regarding the trust. The oil cap blows's been replaced several times- and in Jan 2009, truck kept overheating & brake lights went could not find source of engine leak;and failed to fix brake lights, .they state it's not their problem. The truck has 33,000 miles on it-I even purchased an extended warranty-but no one can or will fix it.filed 2nd complaint with GM-they state the service department never documented the engine leak/overheating/brake problem !I took the truck back to dealer day after signed the contract-tried to get it resolved-they hid from me!!!!and sent my trade in to auction...they also failed to inform me of my 3 day right to rescind'so I canceled the loan on Jan.2009-under the tila law. They are refusing to acknowledge my rights as a consumer;I will not pay 23,000 for a truck that is!
