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.

2005 GMC Sierra Owner Comments

Sierra 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

2005 GMC Sierra. The vehicle sprayed fuel out of it's gas tank. Consumer took the vehicle to the dealership but there was no solution for the problem. The fuel did not stop pumping from the rear tank tot he front tank. The consumer was told not to put fuel in the rear tank, but the gauges did not work on the vehicle, and he did not know when the front tank was full. This has always happened with the vehicle. He called the dealership 3 hours after purchasing it and told them of the problem. He has also called General Motors and they know it was a problem, but they did not have a solution for it. While driving the vehicle sprayed diesel fuel all over a motorcyclist, soaking him in fuel. When the vehicle was taken to dealer, they reach in and bend the flow out of the way, but it did not fix it.
