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 #1

Suburban Z70 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles


In the past year the rear lift gate door and window will not unlock. After driving the car and stopping it will then unlock.. This may be necessary to repeat this several times before the lift gate and window unlock. Some times repeatedly pressing the lock button on the driver door repeatedly will result in it unlocking.

This is a real issue since there is no key slot to unlock the rear lift gate from either the outside or from the inside. This could be a dangerous situation if you are inside the rear of the car (sleeping when campinig) and need to exit out of the car.
