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 #2

Sonoma 4-cyl

My GMC truck has had many problems with the fuel and emissions system but now the truck hesitates and stalls on a regular basis. The truck will stall while driving it causing a very unsafe atmosphere. While accelerating the truck will sometimes hesitate which slows down acceleration. Many other Chevy/GMC S-10 owners have told me about the same problems.

I think there should be a recall on all 2001 GMC Sonomas. Everyone I talk to have had to have there breaks replaced within 5000 miles. I just put breaks on my truck in September. They need the rotors turned again and I need breaks I have talked to the dealership and they will not do anything about them maybe you can
