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.

Silverado 3500

Chevrolet dealership in gaylord, Michigan installed dunlop AT20 grandtrek P245/75R16 tires on my hd 2500 Silverado pickup truck. This truck is a 3/4 ton pickup. These tires were passenger tires rated at 4 ply and never designed to be installed on a 3/4 ton pickup truck. I was not aware of this until June 2014 when I learned this from the Goodyear tire Corp. After they sent me to have their tires inspected. My truck requires lt tires and at least 10 ply. Chevrolet dealership in gaylord made my truck unsafe and dangerous to drive. One tire eventually blew out on the expressway, fortunately a motorist I was passing pulled up along side us and signaled that we had a problem up front at the passenger side wheel area! question is, why would a Chevrolet dealership not know what tires to install on their own Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks? I asked them to put on the correct tires ( 10 ply - lt tires) according to the placard located on my drivers side door at no charge but they refused now what action is to be taken against a dealership who would do this" I had lt tires on the truck back in June of 2010 when I pulled into this Chevy dealership to have one tire repaired because of a slow leak. They talked me into buying 4 new tires and these are the ones they recommended and I agreed to. I did not know that these were not designed to be used on a 3/4 ton pickup truck. I had 75K miles on the truck then and to make matters worse they gave me free rotations every 6 - 8K miles without ever telling me they had installed incorrect tires on my truck! this is a nightmare! what do you suggest I do" GM has been zero help in this matter!!!!---I've tried but they are worthless! and this dealership is pathetic that they will not acknowledge their mistake and correct it by refunding my money back! I could have been killed or another motorist or seriously injured someone.

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Consumer stated while driving on I-66, around mile marker 58, the tire blew out. This happened at 6:45 am. Consumer felt the steering wheel shook, and he felt the rear of the vehicle would fall. This was the driver's side rear tire. The tires had been rotated approximately 2 weeks ago. The tire was previously on the front driver's side. Consumer had a picture that he will send in. The entire sidewall blew out. This occurred on a 2004, Chevrolet Silverado. This was the original tire for the vehicle. Consumer contacted Chevrolet that he had been dissatisfied with general tires in the past, and tried to have the dealership change them at the time of purchase.

On three separate occasions while applying the brake pedal it went to the floor. The vehicle failed to stop. The driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle, and drove it to the dealer for inspection. However, the mechanic could not duplicate the problem at this time. The ABS/brake light stayed on, there was an intermittent rattle in the flywheel, the consumer stated that the clutch has no "throw."
