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.

2004 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012013


  • 86,000 miles


The rear window lift hinge attached to the glass to the tailgate is defective. After researching this hinge online, I located several with the same problem. This could cause several problems if the glass were to separate during travel and should be a huge safety concern for Chevrolet. The estimated repair cost is $1,300 for a defective part that will just re-occur with in a few years as some of the complainants observed online by new owners of 2 years. This part is defective and not due to normal wear and tare.
