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 8-cyl

  • 40,000 miles


When applying the brakes the pedal went very close to the floor with very little stopping power, when I took the truck to the Chevrolet dealer they informed me a brake line had busted and the brake lines are rusted and all the brake lines have to be replaced at the sum of $1,400, this truck is used for a family vehicle and is not a work truck, I may be wrong but I feel 6 years is no way near the life expectancy of a safety system such as a brakes in this geographical area, I was told by the dealer that this was not uncommon.

Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • 82,880 miles
While traveling at about 25 mph a light application of the brake was followed by the brake pedal going completely to the floor. An investigation revealed a ruptured brake line in the area of the brake control valve. After being towed to the dealer I was advised that all the brake lines were severely corroded and needed to be replaced. I bought the truck new and was very concerned to find that my brake lines had failed with only 82,800 miles on the truck and only 6 years old. Brake lines should last the life of the vehicle. This was a serious life threatening failure.

Silverado 2500 8-cyl Diesel

  • 96,000 miles
My brake lines gave out, apparently they are all rusted and in bad shape. My vehicle had just finished an annual safety inspection at a repair shop. Upon leaving the shop when I depressed the pedal to stop for a traffic light, the truck would not stop. The brake pedal went all the way to the floor and the truck took approximately 3 - 4 times the normal distance to stop. There was no warning nor light indicating any issue with the brakes.

Silverado 2500 6-cyl

  • 39,700 miles


Driving at 30 miles an hour brakes failed due to rusted rear brake line. Chevrolet dealer (palm Chevrolet of punta gorda Florida) said this was normal wear & tear and that all the brake lines needed replaced due to rust. They charged $343. For just 1 brake line. They would not honor a 10 year 100,000 mile warranty that I purchased with the vehicle for $1,200. Truck is only 5 years old with 39700 miles on it.

Silverado 2500

  • 88,000 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado. The contact stated that while driving 30 mph, the ABS light illuminated on the dashboard. The contact noticed that the brakes and rotors were wearing excessively due to a defective hub senor that controlled the braking system. The contact took the vehicle to a dealer to have the hub sensor and brake bearing replaced three times. None of the repairs remedied the issue with the braking system. The contact called the manufacturer regarding NHTSA campaign I.D. 07E106000 (wheels:cap/cover/hub). The manufacturer advised that the vehicle was not included in the recall. The failure mileage was 88,000.

Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • 60,941 miles
When operating vehicle in driveway, brake pedal suddenly went to the floor. Upon inspection it was found that a steel brake line toward the rear of vehicle had burst due to corrosion. In this case a complete loss of braking was noted resulting in a minor collision with a tree. No damage to the vehicle or driver. Since this truck is only approx. 5-6 years of age, it seems as though this is quite an early failure. Fortunately it failed in the driveway and not several minutes later when on the highway.
