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

Jan 312009


  • 75,600 miles


I was driving on the highway and looked down and the speedometer said 100! cars were passing me and I knew there was no way I was driving 100. Once I got to my destination, sitting still the speedometer was at either 50 or 60. When in motion it usually reads about 105-115 when going between 60-70 mph. (I think, I really have no idea since my speedometer is broken!!!) I have just over 75,000 miles on a 2005 Suburban 1500.
