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 #3

  • Automatic transmission

We're getting the steering shaft replaced to fix the typical clunk and on the way the A/C stops working. I can't wait to get rid of this Suburban so I don't have to waste 1000's more fixing things that shouldn't need to be fixed yet.

Suburban LS V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,000 miles

Since we have owned this vehicle we have had multiple problems with it. In Spring or Fall when the temperature outside is nice enough to place it on vent, there is constant hot air blowing out the vents. We have also experienced issues during the winter when the front heat was working, but the rear heat did not work. We would have to turn off the car and restart, this seemed to fix the problem.
