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.

problem #2

Feb 192002

(reported on)

Suburban 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


The vehicle is in AWD or 4-wheel drive - step on the gas after being stopped, the transmission sounds as if it is about to fall off. When in 4-wheel drive the vehicle is difficult to turn. Also, rear heater takes 30 minutes to heat up, and then only blows luke warm air when the gas pedal is depressed. Manufacurer states by design.
