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 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,345 miles
Valve stem on tire broke, immediate loss of air, it was an inside dually tire which saved me from getting in a wreck. If it would have been a front tire I would have lost control, at the time I was going 50 mph. Could have been fatal.
