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.

2001 GMC Sonoma Owner Comments

problem #3

Apr 012012

Sonoma 4WD 6-cyl

  • 55,000 miles


The foot operated parking brake broke under normal wear and tear. I had estimates that were well over $300 to fix, and have not yet had work done. I only park on level roads and hope transmission will hold in park. I feel this must be a defective part.
