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

  • 19,648 miles


Purchased new 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 3500. Vehicle was involved in head on collision resulting in the vehicle being totaled by insurance company. The air bag did not deploy and onstar which is standard in the vehicle did not respond. We filed a formal complaint with General Motors regarding the air bag and onstar failure. General Motors product allegation department ordered an event data recording of the crash with the documented cdr file information "event recovered" stating "none" therefore inconclusive.. our safety concern was ignored with the investigation by General Motors being 'closed" via letter dated August 26, 2009. No satisfactory reason was given as to why the airbag failed during a crash that resulted in a total loss vehicle. We own a trucking company with several of the exact same type of vehicles owned and several personal General Motors vehicles and will pursue the safety issue of the airbag and onstar failure to the fullest extent.
