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.

2002 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 152002

Suburban Z71 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles


1. The Parking Brake on my Suburban has never work properly. It will not hold the car on any kind of slope. I have been rejected at yearly inspection station and had to install new kit and still does not hold.

This is definitely a safety item and dangerous in addition to being very costly.

# 2. Cold air in the winter comes in on the passenger side of car and the Chevrolet repair shop at a dealership in NC told me there is nothing they can do about it.

# 3. Steering column shaft had a bumping sound and have had to replace a shaft component twice so far.
