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.

2001 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #5

Oct 192004

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 52,000 miles


The consumer owns a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban. In October 2004 the vehicle quit. A fuse was replaced at a cost of $137.75. This amount included the towing fee. On 12-07-04, the vehicle experienced the same problem. The consumer had to pay $306 to have another fuse replaced. This included diagnostic fees. On 12-14-04, the same problem occurred and the dealer replaced the fuel pump at a cost of $567.55. The contact received recall campaign# 05V155000 concerning the fuel pump about three-four months ago. The dealer and General Motors refused to reimburse the consumer for the aforementioned work performed because the recall hadn't occurred. The recall stated that the consumer would be notified on 10-19-05 because the parts were available. The consumer thought that this was a very unusual amount of time for him to wait for reimbursement.

Vehicle shut down while consumer was driving. The ECM fuse blew out and popped out. Consumer replaced the ECM fuse, and the vehicle started. Dealer did not know what caused the problem. These occurrences happened several times in any given day. The manufacturer stated there were no similar complaints.

  • miles
While driving at high speeds (65 mph), the electrical system shuts down without warning. Lost of engine power, power steering, power brakes, etc. This has happened twice in 6 months. The problem is the ECM-B fuse blowing. The dealer says that everything checks out and that it is a random problem. I can't imagine putting my wife and four kids in a car that shuts off with no warning.
