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 4WD

I have been unable, since purchase, to properly fill the gas tank. The tanks have been replaced, the filler mechanism has been replaced. GMC acknowledges that ther is a problem but six months after first identifying the problem, they say they still dont have a fix. I see from checking consumer complaints that other owners are experiencing the same difficulties and are concerned about the possibility of gas fume buildup and possible explosion.
