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

Suburban 4WD

Driving down the highway at 70 mph the vehicle ceased to operate. Luckily we were on a straight-away and able to coast to a stop on the shoulder. However our routes usually take us through the mountains and when the vehicle lost all control, ie; no brakes no steering, at any posted speed limit that could be dangerous.the dealer informs me that the main computer went out. There was absolutely no warning what so ever. The component just failed. The dealer advises me that the replacement part is of the same "grade" no updates for this part exist. This is not a comforting thought.
