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 3500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles
The contact owns a 2004 GMC Sierra 3500. The contact stated that the speedometer stopped working. The warning indicators were that the speedometer displayed faster speeds than what was actually being driven. As a result, the alternator gauge has failed. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that he would be responsible for the repair costs because the vehicle had over 75,000 miles. The manufacturer sent the contact a letter that stated they were aware of the defect; however, nothing could be done. The estimated repair costs would be $425. The failure mileage was 65,000 and current mileage was 114,000. Updated 5/6/08 updated 05/06/08
