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

Jul 052007

(reported on)

Suburban LT 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles


The problem started right after I bought the vehicle new and has continued to date(99056 miles)- I have had it to the dealer 4 times and still no solution. They even had a computer hooked up for a month and still no solution. When driving around 72MPH, 2200RPM , the speed will drop to 65MPH and the RPM goes up to 3000, and the engine sounds like it is under a load. When this happens I have found out that I can pull over, stop, shift into Park, then back into Drive and everything is back to normal, until the next time.
