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.

problem #4

Silverado 2500

  • 21,261 miles


On numerous occasions the drive's seat belt has totally "released" while driving along the highway while I and other family members have driving along. These inadvertent releases were reported to my vehicles dealer (T & C Chevrolet, ashland, Oregon) on May 27, .2016 at 21261 miles. Dealer said they could not find any defect. The vehicle presently has approximately 32000 miles and the driver's seat belt still releases at unpredictable times. This situation has me very conderned about my and others safety if something un-toward happens.

My drivers side seat belt started to retract very slowly. Now it hardly retracts at all. It gets caught in the door when you close it now. The worest thing is you have open your door to free it. Not very safe if you have started to drive away... dealer would not fix under any of my warrenties.
