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

  • 76,000 miles
Hello, I have a 2005 Chevy Silverado with 76,000 miles on it, the problem is with the gear selector illumination in the dash gauge cluster I can not tell what gear it is in unless it is very cloudy or dark, I am worried that the truck could put it in reverse instead of drive or vise versa.
