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.

2005 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 052005

Suburban 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


: the contact stated that the 2005 Chevrolet Suburban has no quick exit from the third seat and the tailgate. It takes too much force to open from the inside. The vehicle is so long the side view mirrors do not show the road very well even after adjustments are made. The brakes on the vehicle take too much force to stop the vehicle in an emergency. Lastly, the pickup on the transmission is sluggish which is a concern in emergency conditions when accelerating from a stopped position. The contact spoke with the dealer, and was referred to the manufacturer because all issues are with the design of the vehicle.

Suburban 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

The driver and passenger's side mirrors failed. The objects appeared far away than normal. This caused poor visibility. The vehicle had a tow mirror package. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer for inspection, and the mechanic determined that this was a design flaw from the manufacturer. The mechanic informed the consumer that the mirror could be replaced, but the driver had to pay for it. The four wheel drive light had come on.
