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.

problem #1

Apr 152012

Sierra 1500 SLE 4.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 147,300 miles


The noise under my drivers side feet turns out to be low fluid & metal in the transfer case, inner tie rods about to go bad, I GUESS!!! It's the 4th transfer case in less than 50,000 mi's

WHAT"S UP!!! And now new inner tie rod ends!!

AND, 2 weeks later, the truck starts making noises underneath at 0-50mph. not sure if after 50mph. I'm not sure if i'll make it home 10miles or break down.

I take it to mechanic, & he drives w/ me & hears noise. Up on the rack. This is a lead up yo my other complaint about u-joints, & rear yoke carrier. And still vibration noise & i'm mad, & broke.
