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

Sierra 2500

  • 1,935 miles


Hose clamp on hose at coolant reservoir lower connection failed. Vehicle had 1,935 miles on it. Hose clamp was either defective or over stressed at installation when truck was manufactured. This failure resulted in a rapid loss of engine coolant. Vehicle was stopped prior to overheating due to driver noticing that vehicle was having difficulty maintaining normal engine temperature based on temperature gauge indication. Warranty repair replaced clamp with screw type hose clamp. All other engine coolant hoses use similar factory installed spring type clamps. Currently no other problems exist.
