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 #1

Jun 162005

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,600 miles


The brakes at low speeds were working poorly, causing extended stopping distances. They also made a thumping sound when the ABS system failed. Took vehicle to the dealer and they claimed it was other things besides the ABS system. Dealership wanted consumer to spend money on the brake pads/rotors, and calipers first and then on defective wheel bearing. Took vehicle to mechanic, and stated that was not the problem he recommended to the dealer, but dealer did not want to fix the actual problem. The vehicle had excessive amounts of rust on it (frame, calipers, rotors and non-body parts). The calipers were rusted and leaking. The rotors were warped and corroded and the brake pads were worn and needed to be replaced.
