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.

2003 GMC Sierra 1500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 022011

Sierra 1500 WT 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


From Day 1 this truck has had short brake life. At every 20 -25,000 for the front and 10,000 -12,000 for the rear disc brakes they have warped and rusted. GM said the wear is not due to abuse but the vehicle is not driven enough?!? GM said that the rear disc brakes were a bad idea and that's why they went back to drums on the rear.this is an extra clean low mileage vehicle, never plowed or pulled a trailer. GM said I need to drive it more--I use it every weekday about 30 miles to and from work--guess I need to find a new job farther away. I have already spent $4,000 on this issue alone.
