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.

Gm has crappy design of their power window regulators on this truck they commonly break , they use a cables and pully system and the cables usually snap and the window will fall down . First the driver side regulator broke then within a couple weeks the passenger side broke. I had to use duct tape to hold the window up before getting it fixed which cost me approx 200 per window including labor. If you hear a grinding type noise winding up/down your window then chances are your window is about to have problems with the window regulator.
