TSB & Recall question

Well I did a search for tsb's and recalls for my truck and this is what I got(below). My question is, where can I find a list like this that gives all the info (not just a list like you see here). I want to see the entire TSB. The website I was at wants $24.95 for this service. But I thought I would ask you guys if there is a free way first.

Re: TSB & Recall question

Have you tried the local dealer or the corporate people in Detroit? It seems like that would be something that they would be required to share with the public.

Re: TSB & Recall question

your local dealer should be able to provide you with specifics on a TSB, although i wouldn't go in and ask for every one listed, just ones that pertained to problems i was having (like the steering problem, and the wiper problem). let me know if you have any luck, as i have been wanting to do the same thing, just haven't had time to get by the dealer.

Re: TSB & Recall question

Your local GM dealer is required by law to inform you of recalls that are available according to your trucks VIN. But are not under obligation to repair TSB's. [Tsunematsu] Ask the dealer for the number to call Chevrolet directly about recalls. My local dealer had not seen 1/2 of the recalls you listed (I know I printed them out from http://www.alldata.com and took them in)

I have a 96 Silverado, Z71 4x4, real similiar to yours.

The dealer I bought it from replaced the EGR valve for free when the service engine light came on after I bought it (I didn't know it was a GM recall unit later). My local dealer placed covers on the seat hinge points. Wish the covers were done before the seat cover got torn up.

I had an intermittent wiper module problem that was listed as a TSB, but could not get them to fix it for free. Cost me $51 to do it myself.

I did call GM directly and spoke to customer service. They are really helpful. Call, you never know.
