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.

problem #1

May 282005

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
The contact stated the fuel tank collapsed, crushing the fuel pump, which has been replaced twice. The fuel tank was plastic. The vent to the fuel tank was blocked and caused a vacuum which crushed the fuel pump. The first time, the vehicle was driven at 45 mph, it shut down without warning and would not restart. An indicator light illuminated, stating the computer shut down the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to the dealership, and the fuel pump was replaced. Less than three months later while driving, the problem recurred. The vehicle was taken back to the dealership. The fuel pump was replaced a second time, and the vent for the fuel tank was retro fitted to the engine compartment. The vehicle has not had any more problems.
