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 6-cyl

2005 Silverado ls extended cab: Extreme heat with smoke billowing from the front disc brakes. Extremely hot hubs left and right front. Proir to todays pre-fire conditons, I reported to the Chevrolet dealer that the front brakes seem to "stick" while driving and were hot with a burning smell. (truck was purchased last month and has only 466 miles) intermittent hot hubs and burn smell, but no smoke. Today, reporting fire conditions with the extreme heat and billowing smoke. Left a message to the Chevrolet dealer and will put in their shop tommorrow the 8th of April 2005.
