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

Jan 312011

Suburban ZR1 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,443 miles


Purchased a 2004 Suburban 3 years ago with roughly 41,000 miles on it. Now mileage is 67440 three years later. Went through a full coolant reservoir in 2 days. Brought it into Chevy dealership since the vehicle is still under the 4 year/40,000 mile extended warranty we purchased with the vehicle. The warranty company is Transcon. Don't know much about them. Anyways, 2 cracked heads and lifter damage later, Transcon is pulling the regular extended warranty company crap. Service advisor at Chevy called to say they were already giving him a hard time about the complaint, asking if the vehicle had over-heated, was abused, etc. Have changed the oil every 3,000-3,500 miles every time. Performed all maintenance on the vehicle, everything. They are sending an inspector out today to check on the vehicle. Will update when I find out more.......
