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

  • 25,000 miles


Defective spindle rods caused premature and excessive tire wear. All four tires are worn bald on the outer edge of each tire. I have always rotated the tires faithfully every 6,000 miles. Purchased the 2008 chev. Impala new. I understand that GM has replaced the defective spindle rods on law enforcement vehs; but GM refuses to fix the problem on public vehs. Under warranty. I am asking the NHTSA for help. Thank you.
