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 #3

Aug 202006

Sierra 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles


Intermediate steering column began rattling and felt extremely loose at 12,000 miles. Dealership lubed part but did not replace. Rattling and loose feeling have returned and truck will eventually need to be returned to the dealership for another lube or a replacement part. Currently, I have 19,000 miles.

Knocking noise and vibration in steering column. I have taken the vehicle to the dealership on 2 occasions and they've said it's a manufacturing defect and that they are working on a replacement. They greased the column twice and the vibration and noise always comes back.
