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.

Sierra 1500

  • 38,000 miles
Throttle body unit on 2009 GMC Sierra truck burned out & needed replacing at 38 thousand miles. GMC paid for my repair after many conversations with them, even tho they stated it was out of warranty. I put the money out to have it fixed, they are reimbursing me via check to my home address. My co-worker had the same thing happen to him about 2 weeks ago, his throttle body unit burned out on his Chevy Silverado, his is out of warranty as well, his truck is only 3 years old. He was told when he went to get his repaired the part was on a national back order. This sounds like these are going bad all over!!!
