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

Feb 182005

Suburban 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,500 miles


Feb.05 we were in big bear ca. With 4 or more feet of fresh snow: Coming down the hill in our 2002 Suburban the brakes became very soft and pedal went to the floor with no brakes. We checked the ground under Suburban and all the brake fluid was on the snow. We had subruban towed to the nearest dealer in redlands because there is a "bumper to bumper" policy on it. Tom bell had to replace the "brake line". we took a cab to the Ontario airport for a rental car and drove back home.
