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.

2006 GMC Sierra 3500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 172014

Sierra 3500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 79,000 miles


I went out to my truck in the morning and my dash board indicator told me to get my brakes checked; everything was fine the night before. I brought the truck into mymechanic and found out that my brake line is corroded and broken. Also found out that this a recurring and consistent problem with the GMC Sierra. I have my truck serviced by an authorized service center on a regular basis and this has never been mentioned to me. This needs to be a recall item! serious safety threat. Cannot imagine what could have happened if this occurred 2 days later when I was pulling our 40 foot rv. Shouldn't GM be responsible for this? my truck is now in the shop getting the brake line replaced.
