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.

2004 GMC Sierra 1500 Owner Comments

problem #3

Jun 202013

Sierra 1500

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


Like the other guy, if I didn't have a GPS I would be completely screwed. GMC admitted to knowing they had a problem but told me that I was on my own due to my warranty being expired. (GMC told me I was screwed due to warranty being expired)

They said that it would cost me about $1000.00 for them to fix it and even then they couldn't guarantee that it or other gauges wouldn't fail.

Let's just say that as a long time GMC supporter, and a guy who stood behind them during all of the bail out stuff I will probably have owned my last GMC product.

problem #2

Sierra 1500 V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles

This 2004 GMC Sierra 1500/ Ext Cab 4 wd has had speedometer problems, also CD player failed to work at 23000 miles. Brake line has had to be replaced. Could have got me killed! This truck now has 32,990 miles on it. I bought this truck new. Why does General Motors not stand behind these wide spread problems? My truck is like new! I believe I purchased a lemon. I would like to get some help with fixing these issues.
