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.

Our 2001 Chevrolet Suburban is experiencing brake problems which were supposed to be fixed during a 2005 recall of the vehicle. The car is experiencing a sudden activation of anti-lock brakes as described in recall # 05068. I have been told by GM to basically fix it out of my own pocket which I find hard to believe sine they have had recall issues with the same problem.

I having a problem with my 2001 Chevy Suburban 1500 regarding the ABS brake module control that failed, after resource its looks like many thousand of 2000-2002 have the same problem, I call GM and they saying their is no recall. If you check that issue would you think it should be a recall ? [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6) the ABS computer on my 2001 Chevrolet Suburban failed at just over 70,000 miles. I contacted Chevy about this and was told it occurred often and that it wasn't covered.. I have searched the internet and have found numerous other complaints about this same issue and everyone thinks it should be a safety recall issue. Can you please investigate this and get back in touch with me? [xxx]
