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.

problem #1

(reported on)

Sierra 1500 SLE SB CAB

  • 43,000 miles

The park brake on 2002 1500 Sierras will not hold,(even on very slight grades), because the cable is too long.

Gm should recall and repair the park brake on trucks with auto trans, and not wait until someone is hurt, or worse; killed.
