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

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

Consumer owns a 2003 Chevrolet Suburban. He took vehicle to dealer at least seven times since April. When the vehicle turns over it just does not start. He came back from myrtle beach, and while driving on the interstate at 80 mph when the vehicle shut down and stalled. He managed to coast off the interstate, it then started back up with one attempt. He traveled about 150 miles and the vehicle stalled again and it started back, this time it started and was running a little rough. The consumer took vehicle to the next exit and found a dealer who told him that he could make it back to Ohio if he did not drive it very fast. The dealer told him that it was the fuel filter that was not able to handle the pressure. He drove back at 55 mph, and the vehicle did not shut down. The next morning he took vehicle to dealer in farris Ohio where he bought the vehicle. The dealer changed the ignition switch, the fuel pump, and something he thinks is called a ubeck. He was frustrated that he seemed to spend too much time at the dealer instead at home.
