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.

Dec 202005

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • 90,000 miles


: the contact stated the speedometer and tachometer stopped working without prior warning. The contact took the vehicle to a dealer. Although the dealer did not inspect or repair the vehicle the mechanic determined the speedometer cluster gear failed and would need to be replaced. Updated 01/25/06.
