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

Jan 142008

Suburban 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


Periodically our car's gas gauge and speedometer stick. It is intermittent and we cannot find a connection as to when/where. We recently received a letter from Chevy recognizing there is a defect in their manufacturing but also includes a refusal to fix our Suburban because it has more than 70,000 miles on it. This is a safety issue and should fall under a mandatory recall. Cars have to be able to know how fast they are going and if they have enough fuel to get there.

problem #1

Dec 042007

Suburban 4WD 8-cyl

  • 58,800 miles
Defective fuel level sensor provides erroneous data to fuel gauge resulting in gauge showing more fuel available than actually in the tank. Hazard of leaving motorists stranded in remote or unsafe locations/conditions, or of running out of fuel during vehicle operation. Chevrolet has identified the problem as a faulty fuel level sensor/fuel strainer and documented the problem by corporate bulletin 04-06-04-012C but is not offering repair of the problem for out of warranty vehicles.
