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.

Railroad hyrail vehicle equipped, after market, with hyrail wheel assemblies which allow the vehicle to operate on railroad tracks. Once hyrail (flanged) wheels are retracted, the vehicle is operated over the highways and public roads like any other vehicle. On 7/27/12 near Eagle nest, AZ a railroad employee was operating vehicle on the railroad tracks when it struck a standing train at 38 mph. Airbags did not deploy and rail employee was killed. Concern is that the installation of hyrail wheel assemblies might be impacting the airbag sensor. The hyrail wheel assemblies extend approx. One foot of steel framework ahead of the front and rear bumpers. The placement of these assemblies might inadvertently be affecting airbag deployment in crashes on the railroad track and on public roads.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. Consumer would like GM to buy back truck because of design flaws and suspected lemon the consumer stated onstar activated and stated the vehicle had been in an accident. The consumer called onstar to tell them that the vehicle had not been in an accident. The operator asked the consumer were there any lights on the dash. The consumer stated the air bag light was on. The operator attempted to instruct the consumer on how to reset the light, and stated if it didn't clear within two days to call back. When the consumer put the gear into drive and started to go forward, there was a tremendous explosion, dust filled the truck and onstar came on saying the vehicle had been in an accident. They vehicle was towed to the dealership. A week later, the consumer received a call from the dealership stating the explosion was caused by a poor design in the galleys in the floor, they went from the center of the truck to the drivers side door under a rubber mate. One of the galleys went through a rubber grommet which allowed water to leak into a compartment storing very high pressure compact cylinders for the air bag and seat belts. The water caused corrosion on the high pressure cylinders and caused the explosion. Also, the tailgate latch would not latch properly. The dealer found the pivots had seized. On cold starts, the transmission would hesitate and then a loud bang was heard. The dealer found a valve body bolt broken.

  • 63,477 miles
We have a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado. The problem is that all of the electrical components on the dash quits, the radio, the gauges, the air conditioner, air bags don't work, the stabilititrack is off, the traction control is off, and the truck shuts off. This is the second time it has happened but this time a message comes across the speedometer that say engine power reduced and it is missing very bad. The first time this happened the engine did not miss and that message did not come across the screen. The problem resolved its self the first time and it has been a few months since the first time that it has happened again.
