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 #2

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles


In July, my service air bags light came on intermittently in my truck. Everytime I took it to the dealer they couldn't reproduce the light. Not long after that started to happen, the truck started to "chime"(warning signal) and beep, also at intermittent intervals. After 5 trips to the dealer and 19 days later(in the shop) they might have fixed the problem.

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles
I had an accident on Tuesday Sept. 20, 2005 driving my 2005 Chevy pickup K2500 hd 4 wheel drive. I lost control and went off highway striking a city dumpster headon and moving the dumpster approximately 50-60 ft. By police report and than going back on highway and crossing all 4 lanes before the truck stopped. My truck was totaled but my airbag never deployed. I was unconscious and was airlifted to vanderbilt hospital in nashville tn. Why didn't my airbag deploy with a headon crash of this force? this seems to be a defect in the product. I received a 4 inch cut across the bottom of my chin that required several stitches and very sore from my head down my right leg. Still following up with doctors....
