You don't understand how things work. TSB's are designed to
save time and money for the tech's in a dealership, by pooling
the available knowledge from all GM dealerships. They usually
deal with "pattern" failures.
By the way, the worst thing you can do is wander into a
dealership with copies of TSB's you found on the internet,
and demand that all the work be done. They will, (and should)
simply laugh at you. You have to actually "have the problem"
before it can be fixed. The dealerships answer to GM and
cannot just be replacing parts willy/nillly....whenever some
customer comes wandering in with a TSB.
Even if you were under the factory warranty, nobody is going to
just "perform all the TSB's" that "might" relate to your truck.
You have to have the complaint or failure present. Now if people
were smart, what they would do is sit down and read the TSB and
then formulate a complaint that might lead a tech/service advisor to
then perform the TSB procedure. But of course you didn't hear
me say that.
Is it broke? If it is take it in or fix it yourself. If it isn't broke
then go to wally world and buy a paper shreader and give those papers with
the tsb's a whirl. Your dealer will not fix all the little quirks on your
truck if they are all in the owners mind.
