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 #2

Suburban Lt 2500 4x4 6.0L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,085 miles


I have a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 4X4 with 65085 miles and believe that the transmission is just about to go or it may already be blown. It is slipping very badly and is having a hard time going out of first gear into 2nd and 3rd. It seems like there is a defect with this transmission from all the reviews that i have read on the internet. Is there anyone out there that has already gone through this and that has talked or gone through the motions with GM? Thanks
