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.

Suburban V8 Vortec

I had some work done already to this truck, last year we had to pay for the steering repair of a loose shaft. Something is wrong and Chevrolet won't even acknowledge any recalls.

problem #1

Nov 242006

(reported on)

Suburban LT 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles

The "security" light on my dash comes on at least 3 times a week, while driving. If I am moving my car to let my wife out of my driveway, it comes on, I have to wait about 20 minutes to get it to turn back on. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about about this problem. I have had problems with my nearest dealer, Powell Chevrolet (Dallas), when they worked on my 2001 Chevy Blazer and I try to avoid the dealership when ever possible. My Blazer story is too long to get into. I ended up trading in my Blazer for a KIA. Anyway, if there is anyone out with the knowledge and is kind enough to respond, please. All help will be greatly appreciated.
