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.

The contact owns a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban. When the contact started the vehicle, the light that indicates the parking brake is activated was not illuminated. The gear was shifted into drive and the vehicle began to drift while the emergency brake was still applied. The contact turned off the engine. Prior to the failure, the contact heard the sound of metal coming from the rear of the vehicle whenever the brakes were applied. The parking brake was replaced by a repair shop; however, the failure continued. The failure mileage was 30,000 and current mileage was 90,000.
