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.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 302002

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,000 miles


Your id#05V161000 should also include Chevy trucks with automatic transmissions. I own a 2003 Chevy Silverado 2500 hd 4 wheel drive. I have an automatic transmission and my parking brake has'nt held since last fall. Its holding power had gotten continually weaker since the purchase date (9-30-02). Chevy told me I had to adjust it, I did, twice. I can't adjust it anymore. Additionally, my windshield has a perfect crack in it that follows the uppermost blow pattern of the defrost vents perfectly. This crack started during the first cold spell this past winter. It grew everytime I used the defroster. It stretches all the way across my windshield at this point. Chevy told me that since there were imperfections in the glass, caused by wear and tear, that the windshield was not thier responsibility. The imperfections they found were not visible to the naked eye. Damage by road debris would be accompanied by 'spidering' of the glass. None such on my windshield.

Silverado 3500 6-cyl

Rattle sound around the windshield. Dealer tried to say it was the tires out of balance when the truck was brand new. After 3 visits to the dealer the problem still exists.
