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.

Fuel gauge will drop to empty and fuel lights light comes on even though there is more than a half tank of gas I usually keep tank once it drops to below a half tank. Sometime I jingle my keys and it will go back up sometimes nothing.

I can fill my tank up of gas and it will say it is on empty. I have to use the trip all the time and this has even in happened on my 05 trailblazer too. And the seat belts on the 01 locks up while driving down the road and even on the passenger side also please help.

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 97,000 miles
Purchased the used vehicle originally at 42000 miles. Have taken impeccable care of it. Actual dates of incidents are unknown due to the fact most have been ongoing. Brakes failed due to ABS. Fixed twice by GM under the safety recall. Both fixes were bandaids (dealer cleaned and applied a "special" grease twice, they never replaced the ABS sensors. Third fix I paid out of pocket to replace the sensors, and since then the ABS has been ok. Brakes failed due to rust and corrosion (all lines and 2 calipers had to be replaced. Fuel pump failed, fuel lines failed due to excessive corrosion, fuel tank straps failed due to excessive rust and corrosion. Slow leaks in 3 of 4 wheels due to excessive rust and corrosion in the rims.

I own a 2001 Chevy Silverado 3500 extended cab 8' bed 4X4 and have had the brake lines rust out to where the brakes failed and the fuel lines rust to the point of leaking. I am having to completely replace both sets of lines. Have there been any other complaints as to this issue?

My truck has excessive undercarriage rust, to the point of reduced material thickness on the frame and all frame mounted components. Have experience one fuel line failure and fear additional failures of fuel and brake lines. Also all suspension mounting points have large metal flakes coming off.
