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 #3

Jun 012008


  • 60,000 miles


I have a 2004 Suburban with 60K miles. About 1 months ago, the rear window began making a whistling noise while driving. When I inspected it I found that the hinge was separating from the window. I have tried to go through GM with no avail. Their answer is "it shouldn't have happened", but they are not going to do anything about it.

The contact owns a 2004 Chevrolet Suburban. The speedometer malfunctioned and does not operate at all. The repair shop could not determine the cause of the failure and no repairs were made. At 40,000 miles, the dealer rotated the tires, but did not check the rotors. The failure mileage was 60,539 and current mileage was 70,000. Updated 03/14/08. The power window motors, universal joints and shocks all had to be replaced. Updated
