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.

the Chevrolet Suburban nice size suv poor quality , the truck has been in the shop 3 times with the air conditioner blowing hot air the first time they changed the relay switch, the second time they could not duplicate the problem of the compressor going off and on, if you ask me they are to lazy to open the hood and watch, or clueless one, and now the third time they still cannot duplicate the problem but said the control head was bad, now they are gong to replace that we will see , it will be a miracle if this solves the problem, i believe it is the compressor, and they do not want to dig in their own pockets to fix the thing, at least our shop in okc, next step attorney.

Suburban did the hot air on the passenger side twice while driving over a period of several months. Started out on drive with it working and then it went to hot air. A restart of the car corrected the problem those two times. Had the battery replaced and when I picked up the car it was blowing hot on passenger side. Dealer repaired problem in three hours or so. Almost $800 for some stupid door and labor. What a rip. Almost wish I would have taken out the extended warranty.

Suburban LS V8

Periodically in the summer months the front passenger A/C blows hot air. To correct I have to shut the car off and restart which will reset the A/C and temporarily solve the problem.

The passenger is very uncomfortable during the summer months - it gets hot in Texas - the dealer has looked at it twice and say they cannot get the vehicle to duplicate the problem - I think the problem may be with the dealer - I know a man that had this same problem and on his first visit to his dealer they replaced a relay switch and that solved the problem
