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 012009

Suburban LX 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 78,000 miles


When trying to fill up with gas, the pistol nozzle pops off every few seconds. Very difficult to fill with gas unless you are filling very slowly.... Almost 15 minutes just to top off the tank from empty. This has happened at just about every gas station I go to. The matter is getting worse. It seems like there might be a restriction in the fill line to my gas tank which is causing the gas to splash back up and hit the nozzle. I know these nozzles are designed to shut off automatically when they are hit with gas. (or possibly gas vapor?) Solutions .... anyone????
