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

Oct 212003

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My 2002 Chevrolet Suburban will not start once the gas tank gets below 1/4 full. I park in my driveway that has a slight slope to the street and it does not matter which way I pull the vehicle in, it will not start with a low (less than 1/4 tank) amount of gas in the tank. I have spoke to the service manager at the Chevrolet dealership and he informs me that Chevy has not notified him that their is a problem. I have spoke to one other person and he has the exact same problem with his Suburban of the same year. There is a problem and I believe it to be something with the fuel pickup design in these vehicles. I have heard of no recall, or attempt to correct this, because it probably would be very costly to GM. It is a large inconvenience to me and has happened more than four times.
