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.

This is not a safety issue but I am experiencing a problem with my audio system in the 2016 Silverado 2500 high country truck. The audio seems to go in and out of stereo sound and also ssems to be changing its equalization periodically. There doesn't seem to be and rhyme or reason when this happens; doesn't happen when I hit a bump, or stop suddenly, or anything like that. The sound system will just randomly cut in and out in the manner described above. It is mildly annoying and if anyone knows what this could be I'd appreciate the head's up. It's been to the dealer for maintenance and I asked them to take a look at it which or course, they didn't find anything. I know I'm whining but when you spend $51K for a vehicle you want everything to work on it, right!

Entire instrument cluster went out while driving causing loss of needed information such as speed and other pertinent information. Dealer says there is a tsb that the entire truck has to be re-flashed including all modules in the vehicle because it does not recognize the instrument cluster. During this time, all safety systems flashed and appeared to be inactive. Air bag, traction control, ABS, trailer braking etc. This needs to be investigated to see if a recall must happen. If we got in an accident during this occurrence who knows if any of the safety systems on the vehicle were functioning.
