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

Jul 152011


  • 78,650 miles


I own a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban which when braking at low speeds the pedal drops near the floor and the ABS causes it to kick back and pulsate this happens on an intermittent basis causing greatly increased stopping distances. These symptoms are consistent with a recall where they sprayed anti corrosion stuff on an ABS speed sensor as a fix. This recall was performed on my vehicle 3 years ago at 40K miles now I am experiencing the same problem again @ 78K miles and GM says they are not obligated to perform it again or come up with a more permanent fix.
