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
  • 63,400 miles
Driving at highway speeds, car engine died immediately after sputtering and losing power. First time this happened, I pulled off the road and restarted the car almost immediately. Drove another 600 miles without incident. Second time, car died again at highway speeds. Restarted after 15 minutes. After reporting the problem to on-star and having remote diagnostics run, I drove another 25 miles towards dealership rather than waiting for tow. (118 deg heat in desert sun). Engine failed again about 200 yds from dealership. Dealer replaced fuel pump, pressure regulator, and filter. Cropper auto group in casa grande, AZ, kept the defective parts. I have had problems before with fuel level sensor indicating properly on this vehicle. This repair also replaced fuel level sending unit. $800+ repair. 60,000 miles on the car. Extremely hazardous loss of power and control when engine dies without warning at highway speeds. Noticed at least 5 identical complaints on NHTSA website: Oid id numbers 10041486, 10079660, 10099685, 10100051, 10126511.
