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.

Exhaust fumes entering the vehicle when coming to a complete stop. I have been to the dealer twice and they have observed the smell, but have no idea where it is coming from. They are suspecting that it is the new diesel after burner causing the smell.

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 400 miles
I have had diesel exhaust fumes in the 2007 Silverado since I bought it new at the dealer. I put a carbon monixide detector in the truck. Went up to 495 lbs. Had it back to the dealer 3 times allready with no problem found.I sell diesel trucks for a living and found at least 80 other people on line and other places that have had the same problem. I am afraid to drive this vehicle myself let alone put my family in it.I have askes Chevrolet to buy the vehicle back, but I also want this NHTSA to look into this, not only for myself but all the rest of the people out there.
