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 8-cyl Diesel

  • 28,517 miles
All four brake rotors are corroded on one side. Over 50% of the friction surface is missing. Vehicle was taken to GMC dealer clyde revord motors in everett Washington for inspection. Dealer's conclusion was "verified customers concern and found all 4 rotors do have corrosion on them as the rest of the under carriage shows normal signs of road contamination. No creating a safety issue." I took exception to this and contacted GMC customer care hotline and started case # [xxx]. GMC attempted to work this issue but failed to recognize or correct the serious safety issue with the brakes. I have photos of the condition and the original parts if desired. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
