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

Apr 072013

Suburban 8-cyl

  • 64,481 miles


Started engine, depressed brake pedal to shift into reverse. Brake pedal goes to floor with no pressure, brake and stability warning light go on. I back up, then go into drive, travel about 50 feet, apply pressure on brake pedal and again no pressure on pedal, Suburban slowly stops forward movement on level surface. I return Suburban to parking area and turn off engine, call service shop and make appointment for repair. Next week, 4/22 slowly drive Suburban 1 mile to repair facility for service. 4/23 repair manager calls to tell me that all the brake lines are excessively rusted.
