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.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Owner Comments

problem #1

May 192008

Silverado 3500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 76,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado K1500. While driving at an unknown speed, the contact's wife heard a clunking sound and noticed a difference in the steering column. The contact took the vehicle to a repair shop and they referenced NHTSA campaign id number 05V018000 (steering:gear box:shaft sector). The dealer performed a diagnostic and recommended that the intermediate steering shaft be replaced. The VIN was not included in the recall; therefore, the repair would not be made for free. The manufacturer has not been notified. The current mileage was 80,943 and failure mileage was approximately 76,000. Updated 1/6/09 updated 01/14/09.
