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.

1998 Suburban K1500 = repetitive problems with rear brakes not self adjusting, replaced brake shoes twice, replaced springs and all hardware once (since 2000) with no avail. Rear brakes don't work well, front brakes need to stop vehicle antilock brakes have to kick in to stop vehicle. Transfer case now leaking and wondering if rear brake problem is the cause of transfer case problem. Have there been any recalls on this vehicle?
