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 #1

Dec 012006

Sierra 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5 miles


On or about 12/01/06, while pulling my truck ahead, the brakes failed, causing me to roll into a parked vehicle. On 3 other occasions, my truck has rolled through intersections due to ABS failure. I contacted my dealership about the problems I was having and they referred me to GM. When I contacted GM, they alluded to the fact that they were aware of the defect but then indicated that the brakes work as designed. I was then advised that nothing could be done with regards to the brake system but was given some free oil changes for my troubles. When I did finally receive the 12,000 mile oil change coverage, due to delays in their processing, the coverage was actually for only 7900 miles. When GM was contacted, they refused to correct this error.
