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.

2004 Tahoe, 79,000 miles. Engine overheated which could have caused fire if I had not noticed and stopped. GM dealer says overheaing due to crack in cylinder head and confirmed tsb 06-06-01-019B (06/12/2007) applies to vehicle, which admits there is known manufacturing defect in certain cylinder heads which can cause engine coolant to leak internally causing overheating and potential engine failure. Dealer refuses to cover repair. I have pending complaint with GM customer service to pay for damage. I think this should be a recall as it can lead to overheating, engine failure and potential fire. There are multiple reports on internet of same problems by other owners.
