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 #1

Silverado 3500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles


My Silverado's brakes are vibrating and failing to stop, again ! both front wheel sensors were replaced, per G. M.'s recall. Also I have replaced all four brake rotors at my own expense. This failure to stop has nearly caused two accidents. On one occasion the vehicle only stopped after running into a chain stretched across a driveway, this resulted in some minor damage to the front grill. I temporarily disabled the anti-lock brake system by removing the fuse, but this disables the cruise control as well. It is very much a matter of safety that the truck stops when it is supposed to.
