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.

Suburban 8-cyl

  • 70,000 miles


The contact owns a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban. The contact was driving at a low unknown speed on normal road conditions. The "traction" warning light indicator illuminated on the instrument panel and suddenly, she heard a clicking noise and the vehicle began to slow down without assistance. There was pressure applied to the accelerator pedal, followed by an unintended surge. The driver was able to continue operation. The failures occurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and an independent mechanic for diagnostic testing. However, there were no resolutions. The vehicle has not been repaired at this time for the malfunctions. The failure mileage was 70,000. The current mileage was 101,000. Updated 02/17/10. Updated 02/18/10
