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.

Silverado 2500

  • 63,900 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. While the contact was attempting to back his vehicle into the driveway, he noticed that the front driver's side tire was pointing to the left. The passenger side tire was pointed forward in the desired position. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that the tie rod needed to be replaced. The contact did not notice any differences beforehand. The current and failure mileages were 63,900.

Heard clicking noise coming from the front right side of the vehicle when making turns. Sound was only occasional at first then became louder and more prevalent over time. I took the vehicle to the Chevrolet dealer and they determined that the right front hub bearing was faulty and required replacement. This is a sealed bearing that can not be lubricated during routine service intervals per the service adviser. Total failure of this bearing could cause the right front wheel to lock up while driving and/or generate a great amount of heat causing a tire blowout or fire. The bearing was replaced by the Chevrolet dealer at a cost of $631. Old parts were not made available to me. The vehicle drives fine now and there is no noise. The vehicle is a 2005 Chevrolet truck/ Silverado 2500/pu with four-wheel drive and diesel engine. The vehicle had 54,370 miles on it.

: the contact stated the front suspension is inadequate while driving on concrete poured road conditions. The speed of the vehicle must be decreased or the vehicle will go about a foot and half into the air. The dealership has been alerted and the shocks have been replaced twice however, this did not correct the problem. The manufacturer was alerted and a complaint was filed.

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
The contact started having problems at 1,000 miles with the tires. The tires started feathering on the outside edges. At 2,700 miles the dealer replaced the front tires on 10-6-05. The rear tires also started to feather. The dealership refused to replace the rear tires under warranty. The front end alignment was performed at that time. In regard to the alignment, the camber, caster, toe in, and toe out were all determined out of adjustment on all four sides from the factory. This was determined by the dealership. After the new tires and the front end alignment was done the vehicle still pulled to the left extremely hard.
