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

Mar 272009

Suburban Z71 5.3L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


The hoist failed to lower on the side of the road. So I had to go to a tire store to have flat tire fixed. When I got home I had to cut the cable to lower the spare tire. I now have no way of mounting spare tire to truck. This is a poorly designed devise. GM should warrant all hoists with an engineered solution. The current design was not engineered and never used by a GM exec other wise it would have been fixed. GM should use there own procedure...Drill Deep and Wide to Root Cause this issue.
