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 #4

Silverado 3500

  • 1 miles


: the contact stated the front suspension is inadequate while driving on concrete poured road conditions. The speed of the vehicle must be decreased or the vehicle will go about a foot and half into the air. The dealership has been alerted and the shocks have been replaced twice however, this did not correct the problem. The manufacturer was alerted and a complaint was filed.

problem #2

Oct 062005

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles
The contact started having problems at 1,000 miles with the tires. The tires started feathering on the outside edges. At 2,700 miles the dealer replaced the front tires on 10-6-05. The rear tires also started to feather. The dealership refused to replace the rear tires under warranty. The front end alignment was performed at that time. In regard to the alignment, the camber, caster, toe in, and toe out were all determined out of adjustment on all four sides from the factory. This was determined by the dealership. After the new tires and the front end alignment was done the vehicle still pulled to the left extremely hard.
