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.

Takata recall. I was notified in July 2015 that a safety recall was issued for the airbag inflator in my truck. I have tried (3) times since them to have my Chevrolet dealer repair this. But as of 02/18/2016, I am still being told that "the type of repair needed for this vehicle has not been determined. We will notify you when it has". I find this totally unacceptable, as I need my vehicle to Transport myself and my family, yet we are at constant risk for a defective part that could severely injure us or cause death. Can you do anything to expedite this repair? thank you.

Takata recal: I was notified in June of 2015 that the airbag was recalled. It is now 2016 and a "fix" has still not been made to address the problem. This far exceeds the reasonable amount of time it should take to come up with a solution to something that can kill you.

For the past year 1/2 the service stabilitrak / service traction control lights have been coming on followed by hard shifts and now I'm scared to drive it for my own safety and others on the roads ! I've spent over $2000 on trying to fix this problem with no prevail !! very aggravated by this problem and nobody including the dealership can tell me why it's doing this ! I really need help on this problem cause I have 2 small children that I'm scared for them to ride in the truck ! help me and the millions of others I've seen with this very same problem and Chevrolet has issued no ! recalls on this !!? now the problem seems to be getting worse cause before the lights would come on randomly and stay on a few minutes and everything would go back to normal, but now they stay on all the time and the hard shifting from 1 and 2 follow always ! unreal !

  • 60,000 miles
I am filing a complaint due to a safety concern about my passenger airbag on my Chevy. There is a crack on my dash where the airbag is stored creating a safety concern in case of an accident. The pressure from the airbag can make my dash a projectile killing passengers in the car. I have attempted to discuss this with GM/Chevy but they don't want to recognize their faults. This is an issue that many Chevy/GM customers are having. I have pictures of dashes with the cracks in the same place each time. Unfortunately many of these customers have attempted to discuss this concern with GM only to be turned away.

The dash around the airbag is cracked. This is very common on 2007-2013 GM vehicles. It is clearly a manufacturers defect, considering nine times out of ten they are broken. The dash is cracked to the point where if the airbag went off, I would not feel safe, in fear of shrapnel coming from the dash being in front of the inflating air bags. Local dealer offered no fix, aside from an over $1,000 out of pocket repair. This is unacceptable.
