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.

problem #1

Oct 212007

(reported on)

Sierra 3500 3500 SLE 6.6L Diesel

  • Manual transmission
  • 28,000 miles


At around 28000 miles, the clutch started to make noise when engaging. The dealer had a TSB on it and replaced the flywheel under warranty. I asked if the clutch assembly should be replaced as well and said that it should be fine. I tried to get the dealer to change the clutch assembly since he had to remove and replace the transmission and the clutch assy. anyway. I offered to pay for the clutch parts but the dealer already had the truck apart and did not want to wait for the parts. Look for my other complaints to find out what happened at about 86000 miles.
