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

At low speeds vehicle went into traction control mode. I have to take my foot off the petal and then accelerate again for the traction control to turn off. Not sure why this happens but it came on all of a sudden. Reading up on this on the web, some forums think that it could be a front wheel sensor. I will have my mechanic look at this and replace the front hub bearing assembly and the front wheel sensor.

Update from Nov 7, 2014: The "traction" warning light indicator illuminated on the instrument panel and suddenly, 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 starts to stall once the traction control is activated.
