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

  • 12,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado 2500. While driving 55 mph his spare tire fell from underneath the vehicle and hit another vehicle behind him. The tire damaged the front end and two people were injured. A police report is available. The brackets were loose and bent when the tire came off. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who noticed that the tire was too heavy for the brackets that held it in place. The insurance company was also called and will be contacting the GM manufacturer. The failure mileage was 12,000. Updated 04/01/10
