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 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

When filling the gas tank, the pump cuts off at 3/4 full. When I try to fill it all the way, it over flows onto the ground after the pump cuts off again. The dealer (team Chevrolet) says there is nothing wrong with the tank. They say it is the gas station I am using or I should just hold the gas nozzle myself until it is full.

Consumer states that fuel tank assembly has a malfunction. When consumer is putting fuel into his vehicle the nozzle at the gas station keep cutting off, which indicates that the tank is full, but the tank isn't. so you have to keep fueling and esitmating when the tank is full. Nlm
