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.

Truck shakes between 45 and 60. Does it all the time. Took to GMC dealer and they check it out and said it was the way the truck was get used to it. Called detroit and got the same thing. It's not right. It all started with around 14,000 miles.the truck didn't do it at all until then. The service station that I use to service it found the tires to be out of round and the sidewalls were coming undone. Put a new set of tires on and it helped a little bit but not a great deal. They also told me to put weight in the box to help. I tried and it didn't help. All I want is the truck made right.
