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.

Loud noises from left rear wheel, like a loose part, then a grinding sound. Suspect it was not fixed in recall.

Sierra 1500

  • 47,500 miles
Had dealership replace driver side front wheel bearing because it was making a grinding noise. A couple months later the front brake pads and rotors were replaced. After the brakes were serviced, I started noticing that the brakes were pulsating, which was felt in the pedal, at low speeds. Took vehicle to the dealership and they said during the test drive that the ABS system was activating unnecessarily. They then put it on the diagnostic machine for some reasons. I was told I needed to replace both wheel ABS sensors. The dealership said that the ABS has nothing to do with the brake pads and rotors. When the pads and rotors were replaced, again the vehicle was put on the diagnostic machine, but didn't pick up that the sensors were firing. I'm doubting it is coincidence that these things are happening at random. There has to be some kind of correlation between the wheel bearing being replaced, the pads and rotors being replaced, and now the sensors needing to be replaced. My vehicle is a 2003 GMC Sierra and has 47000 miles on it. All this happened within the last 6 months and 1500 miles.
