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.

This was a recall issue, but at the time of the recall the cluster panel was functioning so it was not eligible for the recall. Once the truck started to get close to the magical 80,000 mile mark, the cluster panel failed. GM knew these cluster panels were faulty, all should have been replaced!! Not just the ones that were failing. GM should be going back thru all these recalls and correct these problems as they testified. If I was an inexperienced driver my speedo was not working correctly, so I could of thought I would actually going 40 mph vs 80mph or even more. I used the tach and counted the number of times the truck shifted to determine what gear I was in to guess my speed.
