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

problem #1

Jul 192011

Defect discovered this date, but known by manufacturer. Exhaust manifold bolts are breaking, leading to exhaust gases leaking under hood which will lead to emission problems. Learned that this is a common problem with GM 8 cylinder trucks made from 1999 to 2007, which involves about 12 million vehicles. The repair cost is $800 to $1000, and GM has not recalled or offered to extend warranty to cover the repair. This is clearly a manufacturing defect and GM should be held accountable.
