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.

The contact owns a 2005 GMC Sierra 1500. While driving at an unknown speed with the heat activated, the contact smelled something burning coming from the blower motor. Sometimes, after the vehicle was driven, he would smell fuel. When making a left or right turn, one of the rear tires slides and the other one keeps spinning. The contact believes that the failure was caused by the rear differential or the ABS. The vehicle has not been diagnosed by a dealer or mechanic at this time. The failure mileage was 205.
