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 Silverado, had to replace tires. Sides were worn out. Dealership that we purchased from would not replace. Went to my Pontiac dealer and they prorated the amount for new tires (Bridgestone tires).

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,100 miles
: the contact stated while driving at 50 mph on a highway a hissing noise was heard as if there was air leaking, followed by the rear end of the vehicle swaying. The contact pulled over, and the contact discovered the left rear tire blew out along the sidewall area. There were no obvious road hazards. The tire indicator warning lights did not illuminate, and the contact had not experienced any prior problems with the tires. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The dealer collected the tire, and a manufacturer representative inspected the tire. Under the representatively instruction the dealer replaced the tire. The manufacturers recommended tire pressure to be 35 psi; however, the contact kept the pressure at 40 psi. The contact believed the tires on the vehicle were incorrect, but the manufacturer had the exact same tires listed on the recommendation sticker on the vehicle itself. The tires are general ameri-trac P245/70/R17 and were the original tires at purchase. The contact's father owns a 2003, Chevrolet Impala which is still under warranty and had the same exact failure on two occasions. The first time the dealer, service Chevrolet, replaced the computer. The second time the car had to be towed to the dealership and the ignition switch was replaced. The problem with these vehicles can lead to a very dangerous situation if heat is needed in the car during the winter, but it will not start. Contact maintains that there should be a recall.

Silverado 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles
Rt front tire blew out on my 2005 Silverado while driving. Tire only had 2500 miles on it. It was a Bridgestone dueller A/T tire. I am going to contact the dealer on Oct 31 to find out if my tire will be replaced along with the rim. Caused loss of vehicle control and could have caused major damage or death if failure happened at speed or on crowded road.
