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.

My neighbor who also bought a '99 that same year had his brakes replaced at 24,000 miles. It seems unconscionable that a heavy vehicle like a Suburban should have inferior brakes. Criminal charges should be brought against the GM engineering department. I've had the brakes worked on multiple times because they ALWAYS wear out prematurely. Had to go with "lifetime" guaranteed brakes to solve the pads problem. Unfortunately, the rotors only last 70,000 miles or LESS.
