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 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 10,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. While driving 50 mph, the contact heard a loud whistling noise coming from the passenger side vent when the heater was activated. The dealer was unable to diagnose the failure; however, they replaced the vent cover. The failure persisted. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that the taping or molding around the heater core may have caused the failure. The dealer sprayed silicone on the dashboard; however, the failure continued. Approximately eleven months later, the dealer inspected the vehicle and stated that the failure was a normal occurrence. As of November 27, 2007, the dealer had not repaired the vehicle. The failure mileage was 10,000 and current mileage was 13,635.
