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 #1

I have a 2005 Chevrolet surburban. The back hatch window has plastic or rubber hinges to hold it to the frame. The window also has a bolt to hold the piston cylinders so the window could close and open. The window frame where it holds the hinge broke off and now the hinge or bolt that holds the cylinders for the window is coming loose. I have cannot open the window hatch in the rear or it will not close. I bought the Suburban brand new and I don't thing this should be happening in four years.
