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.

2003 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 262007

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,200 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500. While driving 30 mph, one of the tires flattened. The contact was unable to use the spare tire because the tire release cable latch was rusted and impossible to remove. He walked to a gas station and had the flat tire repaired. The dealer and manufacturer stated that the vehicle was ten months over its warranty. The current and failure mileages were 32,200. *updated 12/12/07

problem #1

May 242005

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 46,400 miles
An internal mechanical failure within the air conditioner's compressor caused the catastrophic failure of the ac unit. This ocurred at approximately 46000 miles. A hose attached to the compressor completely blew off the vehicle, disseminating a white cloud and freon on the vehicles directly behind me on the highway. Chevrolet charged $1700 to repair the ac unit, since the vehicle was outside of the warranty. I have spoken with two other people who have identical incidents.
